Can confirm that it works perfectly and updated the 5.5 version savegame without any issues. Awesome work!

lea2501: Thanks for the new homepage link.

While it's debatably less secure, I just made the scores file world writable. Comment is available in the PKGBUILD if you wish to opt to a more secure option.

Updated to 5.7.13, hopefully you all enjoy.

This builds and runs fine on aarch64, but I did have to make the scores files writable.

Someone flagged this out of date, but 5.6 is the last official umoria release, as far as I can tell. Anyone have a pointer to anything different?

beej commented on 2014-11-10 17:04

fsckd: good pointers. I've put quotes around pkgdir, stopped gzipping the man page, and added termcap to the deps.

Hopefully that clears all that up. Let me know if it doesn't.

Once again I will descend the dungeon to seek my fortune amidst the corpses of giant louse! Yay!

A couple of things:
(1) Please put "quotes" around ${pkgdir}. Not needed for most people but some put spaces in their path. Weird, I know.
(2) You don't need to gzip the manpage anymore. makepkg does that for you. In makepkg.conf users can control if man pages are compressed.
(3) I get an error:

In comparison, 5.5.2 does build.

Thanks for maintaining this package!

OK! I've updated it to 5.6. Note that the save file has changed from "" to "moria-save", so rename it if necessary.

Let me know if it's not working right. And if it's not and you need a fix, the working 5.5.2 AUR source can be found here:

beej commented on 2014-10-14 06:55

Sorry, guys. A lot of life has passed by since I remembered this wasn't working.

I finally tracked it down. A new parameter in makepkg.conf (-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2) was causing moria to not run due to a buffer overrun when reading the hours file.

And now that 5.5.2 is working, I can try my hand at 5.6. :)
