I downloaded Doom 1.8 from a site linked off sunhelp.org (towards the
bottom of the page). It worked fine for me, after I did two things:
0. I run it when cd'd into the Doom directory. I think you can set
up symlinks or edit your .doomrc instead, but as I only play doom
about once a week, I'm lazy. :-) There is a description of this
problem in the readme file, I believe, or on the web site.
1. Make sure you're running the sunxdoom binary and not sundgadoom,
which won't work on SparcBooks as the frame buffer is not
supported. (sunxdoom doesn't access the framebuffer directly).
