The Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based strategy game set in a fantasy
environment, where players can build an army of different kinds of
fighters from races such as elves, dwarves, orcs, trolls, and more.

It is a turn-based strategy game on a hexgrid with several challenging
single-player campaigns and different kind of multi-player matches.

If you want to compile the wesnothd server, you might want to add
the following switches to the wesnoth.Slackbuild script:
and replace 'user' and 'group' with the UID and GID under which you want
the server to run.

Wesnoth now requires boost, which is also available at
