Wow, I'm here posting about Linux. Never thought I'd see the day, but I've been shown the light by a smart guy and a few VMs and man pages later and her I am.
I think I've managed to get my Ubuntu VM to punch through the company proxy to get out to the net (I've used CURL to download Valgrind) and now I want to stretch my legs with APT-GET a bit. I thought something fun to do would be install Nethack, surely its in an APT repository. I've looked into the SOURCES file to see the repositories I can reference.. what is the universe/multiverse business? Who is Wily Werewolf and am I looking at his repositories? Where can I find more repositories to stick in there, specifically one hosting a Nethack (tiles version please, I can't do the ASCII) so then I can use APT-GET and pull it down?
