You should install a front-end for NetHack if you wish to play the game. Each of them includes the original non-graphical version, and they can all be installed at the same time: - nethack-console: no graphics, just plain NetHack; - nethack-x11 : original X11/Athena-based graphical version; - nethack-lisp : Lisp window version.
The various graphical front-ends for NetHack all share a large number of files in common. This package contains the graphics, dungeon levels, and utilities common to all NetHack front-ends.
It also provides a few utilities such as recover, for retrieving auto-save files in case of a power failure, and dgn_comp and lev_comp, two utilities for making your own NetHack levels and dungeons. The "recover" utility will be run every time the system boots, if there are any auto-save files available.
