I am looking for a MARS (a software to run CoreWar warriors) working on GNU/Linux, but the only one I could find (nMars) crashes when I open or create a warrior file.

The last public release of nMars, which happened in 2007, stopped working in Mono, which is what I assume is used to run a .NET program under Linux. You could try an older version, but WINE sounds like your best bet. – kotekzot Apr 12 '12 at 14:15

Yes. There is a variaton of pMars available for Linux. If you use Arch Linux, it is available in the AUR. For other distros, you could attempt to download the tarball and compile and install it manually.
