Whaaaaaaat?! I was sure Nethack was as dead as a doornail. Well, time to download the new and improved version.

Hopefully they release a linux binary soon. It looks like a nightmare to compile. Compiling DCSS is bad enough.

The new release is actually much easier to compile than previous ones.

For most Linux systems:

tar xvf nethack-360-src.tgz
cd nethack-3.6.0/sys/unix
sh setup.sh hints/linux
cd ../..
make all install

The binary and all files will be installed to $HOME/nh/install/games by default. If it doesn't compile correctly, all of the compile options are in sys/unix/hints/linux instead of being spread out all over as they were before.

If you don't want to compile yourself, 3.6.0 can be played on nethack.alt.org.

It will come soon enough, don't worry.
