Im getting freaking irritated by linux, all these freaking commands and the sort and all this patching and downloading im having to do, its about to make me wanna just throw my computer through the wall.
Im trying to figure out how to use the make clean, make file, .configure, make, just pretty much anything that has to do with it and i cant figure a darn thing out. Im usually capable of figuring things out, but not even the books i have explain how to do it. They just say go here and do this, well that place they tell me to go and do this, how do i do that, i can get there but how do i use the make commands and stuff. Its really getting on my nerves that everywhere i go they dont even give a step by step instruction. Its like they expect u to know what to do or something.
i read the readme file in a tar.gz file and it says this:
This will make an executable called "mudix". You can place this file anywhere
you like, it's the only file you need. How I do it is this, I have a link to
mudix with "ln -s <path>/src/mudix /usr/bin/mudix" then to run I can do
"mudix <userfile>" or "mudix <site> <port>". The reason I don't execute from
the src/ directory is because MUDix creates userfiles and logfiles in the
_current_ directory. And it makes things look messy.
Of course I should have added a configure script, I know... but it isn't
really needed for this small program ( I hope :P ). I did fiddle with the
autoconf tools a little, but it didn't work right away so I kept it like this.
At 4.0 I added a configure script. To compile now just type:
Yup i need the luck... so can anyone help me out better than he can. tell me where to go, what program, if theres one, to use, and tell me how to initiate the commands or whatever. Im about to go back to windows but i dont want to because linux "was" pretty easy until i had to start doing all this stuff.
Gotta love being a TOTAL newb to this system jeez kinda reminds me of dos except dos was fun and easy.... well to me.
to the max :P
