Are you trying to play in a text console when the game has been
compiled for graphics only?

I can play over ssh to my home machine perfectly well, using the -mgcu
switch. If that doesn't work for you, my first guess would be that your
version is compiled for X only.

Good luck,

Sounds like there are some environment variables you need to set...

Easiest way to do this is the -X option of ssh:

ssh -X user@server

Sorry...

it seems you get "can't open display" from X in the case your env is not correct.

"display module" error comes from the game,
and sounds more like a real installation problem.

Your ssh might be reporting itself as an xterm. Try "export TERM=vt100"
at the shell prompt and then run Angband.

Thanks for all the suggestions -

I eventually got it working. I don't have (want) X installed on my server
(KISS). I installed ncurses and reinstalled angband. Works like a charm. I'm
off to find the One Ring. Thanks again.

You don't need to install an X server on your server to use X programs.
All you need is one computer with an X server and an ssh client, and a
second computer ( your server ) with X applications and an ssh server !

Yes, I know it's impossible to understand what is written
