[SOLVED]x86_64 Linux ADVENT?

Is there an implementation of the ancient game "Adventures in Colossal Cave" that runs on 64-bit Linux? I found a Windoze version a while back and liked it. Also, I'm intrigued by any artifacts from the elder days.

And lo, it came to pass, that the neophyte encountered the Beplattered One and humbly posed the question, "Oh great master, is it a sin to use vi?" And St. IGNUcius didst thus reply unto him, "No, my young hacker friend, it is not a sin. It is a penance."

You could create a pkgbuild for the windows version of your game using wine. (assuming it works on wine, of course) Check the Wine PKGBUILD Guidelines for more details.

No.
Open source is about opening the source code complying with this conditions, period. The ability to choose among several packages is just a nice side effect.

You might want to install

ewaller@odin:/etc 1025 %pacman -Ss bsd-games
community/bsd-games 2.17-13 [installed]
    A linux port for a collection of BSD command line games.
ewaller@odin:/etc 1026 %

edit:

ewaller@odin:/etc 1026 %adventure

Welcome to Adventure!!  Would you like instructions?
yes

Somewhere nearby is Colossal Cave, where others have found fortunes in
treasure and gold, though it is rumored that some who enter are never
seen again.  Magic is said to work in the cave.  I will be your eyes
and hands.  Direct me with commands of 1 or 2 words.  I should warn
you that I look at only the first five letters of each word, so you'll
have to enter "northeast" as "ne" to distinguish it from "north".
(Should you get stuck, type "help" for some general hints.  For
information on how to end your adventure, etc., type "info".)
                              - - -
This program was originally developed by Will Crowther.  Most of the
features of the current program were added by Don Woods.  Address
complaints about the UNIX version to Jim Gillogly (jim@rand.org).

You are standing at the end of a road before a small brick building.
Around you is a forest.  A small stream flows out of the building and
down a gully.
quit

Do you really want to quit now?
yes

OK



You scored 27 out of a possible 350 using 1 turns.

You are obviously a rank amateur.  Better luck next time.

Re: [SOLVED]x86_64 Linux ADVENT?

Thanks, this should work. Using a program once built for TOPS-10, in wine is ludicrous. But thanks for the help, chris_i!
