Powwow for Linux - trouble compiling

Post by Twitter » Sun Aug 27, 2017 5:16 am

Running Linux Mint 18.2 Xfce edition,

To compile Powwow, I input the commands found at http://mume.org/Download/clients/powwow/

It seems to go along well enough, but it stops, and the error reads 'Makefile:307: recipe for target 'powwow' failed' ... This is very troubling, as I really want to run Powwow :(

Here are the last however-many lines of the output for 'make':

Code: Select all

mv -f .deps/ptr.Tpo .deps/ptr.Po
gcc -DPOWWOW_DIR=\"/usr/local/share/powwow\" -g -O2 -rdynamic -ldl  -o powwow beam.o cmd.o log.o edit.o cmd2.o eval.o utils.o main.o tcp.o list.o map.o tty.o ptr.o  
cmd.o: In function `cmd_module':

Did you ever get this compiled? Shooting in the dark here, but make sure you have all the necessary permissions when you compile the source. Maybe try doing it as administrator.
