Upon trying to 'make' the binary I got this message about 1/2way through. Its a clean make, I don't know whats going on and if anyone could lend a hand I would very much so appreciate it.

This type of error is occuring in the linking stage of the compiling process... during linking you combine all the 'internal' compiled functions (contained in the object files - *.o) and 'external' library functions to construct the application binary (dawn in this case).

If the source code references a function which it can't find a compiled form of when it goes to linking, you get a 'undefined reference to ...' linking error.

In your case specifically, a compiled form of the deflate function can't be found... this is normally part of the ZLib compression library - used by the mud for MCCP (Mud Client Compression Protocol).

MCCP is normally only enabled on machines which have a working copy of the zlib library... the presence of this library is detected by the configure script.

Rerun the configure script (cd src/configure; ./configure; cd ..),
then do a make clean, followed by a normal make.

If the linking error still exists, I suggest you manually disable MCCP by editing descript.h and adding the line
#define DISABLE_MCCP
directly after
#ifndef DESCRIPT_H
#define DESCRIPT_H
at the top of the file.

Let us know how you get on,

All right I checked all that, and in the config the zlib.h IS there...so I don't know whats wrong...but when ig to the same error message I tried to disable the MCCP and it STILL had the same error. I don't have ac lue whats going on with this thing...I've gottan a version of QuickMUD up on this server so I know it works, but my basic ROM won't work, gives the same error there too....help!

Can you please confirm the top of src/descript.h looks like this:

/********************************************************/
// descript.h - descriptor_data class
/********************************************************
 * The Dawn of Time v1.69q (c)1997-2002 Michael Garratt ...
...
...
 *    notice. 
 ********************************************************/

#ifndef DESCRIPT_H
#define DESCRIPT_H

#define DISABLE_MCCP

/********************************************************/
//typedef unsigned int SOCKET;
/********************************************************/
...


If not, make it look like that and do a make clean, followed by a make.

Let us know if you still have problems, quoting the error message this time.

Thats not actually an error... you have successfully compiled the dawn and resolver binaries.

Continue with the instructions at http://www.dawnoftime.org/getting_started.html.

That deals with MPX or something or other.. basically its a mud compression util, that some clients can use. dont know much about it, so i just yanked all that code out cause i couldnt get it to make right either.. and i tried installing the zlib's and stuff, but my *lack* of linux knowledge is preventing me from figuring it out. so i just yank'd all that stuff out. compile again, yank some more stuff out, and so forth and so on. I know this doesnt solve the problem only takes the problem away, but thats the best *i* can do. if someone else is willing to make small helpfile on it.. that'd be nice.

It's MCCP - Mud Client Compression Protocol - you don't need to yank stuff out, just change the appropriate compile option. Search for MCCP in the source and makefile, you should find it.
