Bug#2663: nethack doesn't work - permissions problem
I installed the nethack package for the first time. It produces this
output when run:
NetHack, Copyright 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993
By Stichting Mathematisch Centrum and M. Stephenson.
See license for details.
Warning: cannot write scoreboard file /usr/lib/games/nethack/record
Hit space to continue: No write permission to lock perm!
Hit space to continue:
...and then exits.
This looks like incorrect permissions on /var/lib/games/nethack and the
files within it.
