< Greetings, I'm new to the list and to Coldmud in general.  I've put up,
< well, tried to put up, a coldmud 0.12 1c server and run the Cold Dark core
< 1.1 and have had very little luck.  I've got the server compiled and it
< will start up the core.  However, some odd things are happening.  For
< instance, when you connect as a guest, it gives the server a segmentation
< fault and kills it.  The @prose command also does the same.  I'm running
< it on a SunOS 4.1.3 machine, is this the problem?  Is this a common bug? 
< I had no problems compiling the 0.10 server on a linux system.  Any help
< that is out there will be greatly appreciated.

Read the file doc/README.src, it has some comments about changes you need to
make on your type of system.  Also, somebody noted that line 166 of README.src
should read:

                    list = prepare_to_modify(list, list->start, list->len + 1);


                    list = prepare_to_modify(list, list->len + 1);
