Creating and maintaining a MOO is a very time-consuming process,
especially in the beginning. It would be wise to ask around for an
experienced wizard who can advise you on technical as well as social
Assuming your system will have no problems compiling MOO, here are the
Download and untar the file: beta.xerox.com/pub/MOO/MOO-1.7.9p2
If you want your MOO to be able to send mail, go into the MOO-1.7.9p2
directory, and edit the file 'options.h' Look through the definitions
for the line reading: /* #define OUTBOUND_NETWORK */ Get rid of the
/* and */. Save the file and quit.
At the prompt, type 'configure'... then type 'make'
When the configure and make are done, download the most recent core from
beta.xerox.com/pub/MOO ..unzip it, and rename it to a more appropraite
name, like MyMOO.db Then type 'restart <moo-name> [<port>]' The
MOO-name will be the name of the file without the .db suffix.
If you're confused, get someone else to compile :)
