## Distributions

Nyancat is available in the following distributions:

- [Arch](https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?q=nyancat)
- [Debian](http://packages.qa.debian.org/n/nyancat.html)
- [Gentoo](http://packages.gentoo.org/package/games-misc/nyancat)
- [Mandriva](http://sophie.zarb.org/rpms/928724d4aea0efdbdeda1c80cb59a7d3)
- [Ubuntu](https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nyancat)

And also on some BSD systems:

- [FreeBSD](http://www.freshports.org/net/nyancat/)
- [OpenBSD](http://openports.se/misc/nyancat)
- [NetBSD](http://pkgsrc.se/misc/nyancat)

## Setup

First build the C application:

    make && cd src

You can run the C application standalone.

    ./nyancat

To use the telnet server, you need to add a configuration that runs:

    nyancat -t

We recommend `openbsd-inetd`, but both `xinetd` and `systemd` work as well. You
should be able to use any other compatible `inetd` flavor too.

## Distribution Specific Information

#### Debian/Ubuntu

Debian and Ubuntu provide the nyancat binary through the `nyancat` package. A
`nyancat-server` package is provided to automatically setup and enable a nyancat
telnet server upon installation. I am not the maintainer of these packages;
please direct any questions or bugs to the relevant distribution's bug tracking
system.
