Description Ryan Phillips (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-04-10 22:38:04 UTC
I've added a comment to the end of the ebuild script to tell the user how to
enable color support within an X terminal.  It appears console color support
works ok.

OPTIONS=color in the ~/.nethackrc file

Thanks, added and commited teh ebuild.
I'm considering to forwardport my default .nethackrc patch from nethack 3.3
series, leaving this open as a reminder. :)

I'll just tack this ebuild on here.

This version I wrote from scratch, but after I got stuck I got a lot of good
info from the existing nethack ebuilds.  I have included a CREDITS.gentoo.

On to the meat.  This ebuild supports USE flags X, qt, and gnome.  I have also
included a default .nethackrc file and a FAQ-ish thing about why I made some
decisions.  It removes the need for /usr/games as this is to be avoided from
what I hear.  It will emerge with qt2 or 3 installed, but it will only use 2.  I
have tested tty, X, qt, and gnome window types and it seems to run very

The whole setup process should be:
emerge nethack
cp /usr/share/nethackdir/dot.nethackrc ~/.nethackrc

This was such a fun project.  Let me know if I screwed the pooch.

Uh, seems I can't create an attachment.  Spider I'll email you the build.
