the one and only version of the game that didn't give me a headache while installing

arch is supreme and the people at AUR and the people behind the packages need some kudos

source= needs updating to git+https since github deprecated git://:

fatal: remote error:
  The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported.
Please see for more information.

I have updated it to 3.6.5, but I couldn't retain logfile (my previous scores) also pkg/nethack-git/var/games/nethack/logfile and pkg/nethack-git/var/games/nethack/xlogfile both are empty even after several YASD!! in the current. I'm not sure where the path to logfile is, wiki doesn't help much..

@hisacro: bug reported.

Edit: switched to 3.6 branch until 3.7 is in a better shape.

make: *** No rule to make target 'lib/lua-5.3.5/src/lua.h', needed by 'lib/lua-5.3.5/src/liblua.a'. Stop. ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...

I have located lua.h at /usr/include/lua.h, I'm not sure where to point the build path

wow is this game still being developed, I remember being little calling the game "man and dog in 100days, in norwegian language". Nethack was to hard to pronounce i was a child.

Had to hack the game to start it, var/games/sysconf line 119. Gnu debugger it wants (gdb). Good thing it comes with man pages if im going to try it.

Might be one of the first rpg with random generated levels :>
