Thread: problems installing lich

  1. #61


    Well, I'm another newbie needing help. Tonight I logged on as normal, and all of a sudden I couldn't connect to ;lnet nor could I run bigshot because I don't have a map database anymore?

    I uninstalled everything multiple times. I have installed ruby4lich, and installed lich 4.6.52 about a half dozen times. When I log back into gemstone I get a repository error when it first loads up. I can't run any movement apps like ;narost or ;go2 because I have no map database, and I can't use ;lnet. It says it'll try restarting after 299 seconds.

    Any ideas?

    This is what is says when I log in:
    --- Lich: alias service started
    --- Lich: lnet active.
    --- Lich: repository active.
    [repository: error: unrecognized command. Try ;repository help]
    --- Lich: repository has exited.
    [lnet: connection lost]
    [lnet: waiting 299 seconds before trying to reconnect...]

    and when I try to use ;go2:
    >;go2 bank
    --- Lich: go2 active.
    --- Lich: error: no map database found
    [go2: error: your current room was not found in the map database]
    --- Lich: go2 has exited.

    I solved the map database issue by ;repo download-mapdb about an hour after I posted this. I still can't figure out the lnet problem. Please help, and thank you.

    Finally got all the ruby stuff sorted out, and now I'm getting this error. I've moved Lich, deleted and reinstalled lich, done a search for lich.exe...I'm at a bit of a loss. Running windows 10 64 bit home edition if that makes a difference.

    Anyone have the contents of their gem.bat and gem.cmd files that they'd post here? I keep getting an error that gem.cmd or gem.bat cannot be found in my directory. Gem.cmd is definitely there but I'm still stuck at it trying to install sqlite3. Maybe manually making the file it wants will help move me along.

    For any who may be curious, I managed to solve the problem. I had to manually download Ruby 2.6.6-1 (x86) and then install sqlite 3 and gtk2. Once I did that, I rebooted, set the rubyw file in the Ruby26 folder to run in Win 7 compatibility mode, and it worked.

    I'm trying to install lich on a new computer, and have followed the advice in here, but continue to have the following issue with the sqlite3 install

    C:\>c:\ruby200\bin\gem.bat install sqlite3 --source --no-ri --no-rdoc
    Fetching: sqlite3-1.4.2.gem (100%)
    ERROR: Error installing sqlite3:
    The 'sqlite3' native gem requires installed build tools.

    Please update your PATH to include build tools or download the DevKit
    from '' and follow the instructions
    at ''

    When I try just running Lich and tell it to install the command prompt never opens, it just kills the load completely. So nothing seems to be working, I tried clearing out any remnants of Ruby and reinstalling but hit the same issue every time. Any help is appreciated.
