I just downloaded your tarball, compiled it and tried to run

spent so much time in that. Really appreciate the work.

The segfault is not supposed to happen. Some questions:

1. Which commands did you use to build it?

2. What are the contents of 2.bh.board?
Seems I gave it a non-existing file. Sorry for blindly following the README file. I had assumed 2.bh.board is there, but it is not. However, it means we have to handle an exception here. This is the gdb output:
(gdb) run --game black_hole 2.bh.board
Starting program: /home/nandakumar/Downloads/software/black-hole-solver-0.14.0/black-hole-solve --game black_hole 2.bh.board

Thanks for testing!

Since I've failed to compile it, I would ask this directly rather than
testing it myself: is it a play-able game?

It is an automated solver for a game, and it should be usable.
And about Tower of Hanoi. Yes, I first thought it is really silly to put
it into Debian repo. But since there is a games-console package, and I
couldn't find a Tower of Hanoi piece there, I just thought it is
reasonable to include it. I still have no idea whether I am being silly.

Of course I have serious packages which I'd like to put into the Debian
repo. But I have zero experience with the official process, and I just
thought this simple one would be a better choice as my first experimet.

Nice! Good luck.
