Off-hand, I know of the console mudd clients tf and tintin++, if
you're looking for a user interface into mudd servers. As for servers
themselves, I would recommend aime (which isn't available for Debian Sid
yet), or ggz gaming zone, which has a text interface, but I haven't
checked it out as yet. In Debian,
apt-cache serch <item>
...is your friend. The bsdgames package also has 'adventure' and
'phantasia,' which are text-based games you may find of interest, if
you're old enough to remember the old Zork games. The Rogue-like games
are pretty useless with their floor-plan displays. You'll likely only
find 6 or 7 text-based games or interfaces that you'd find of any use,
though. The 'jzip' and 'xzip' packages look promising, but the games
for them are located off Debian somewhere. I gather they're much like
the game 'adventure' in the bsdgames package, but just decode the game
files people have created.
aptitude show <package>
...will give you details on the package, and is a little quieter than,
apt-cache show <package>
I use the following shortcuts in /root/.bashrc:
alias search='apt-cache search'
alias show='aptitude show'
...to search for, and show packages, respectively. HTH,
