Title: IRC server - wondering
Post by: vinikon on December 13, 2016, 06:34:54 AM
Hi people,

I'm wondering if someone tried to find/install/use an IRC server for TC?

We need a small one for a company with 8-10 stations.

Thanks in advance,

Exactly,

I was running this server on a Debian machine. Worked as a charm. Is there a possib to have it under TC?

You could compile it yourself and make an extension of it - all extension submissions are gratefully received.

I wish I could but I have no knowledge on how to do this....

I have no idea about running an IRC server, and no idea whatsoever about unrealircd, but I gave it a go and built it from source.

The installation seems to be straight forward as the provided  ./Config  script (yep, not  ./configure ) leads one through while holding ones hand (where I've hit ENTER to accept the default for each question asked, except for the target installation directory).

It seems to me that it's best to build it yourself, because it's asking quite specific questions regarding SSL certificates and wants, or prefers, to install to the users $HOME directory. Also their website instructs to not install as root, so I'm not quite sure how to configure it to work well with Core as an extension, if it's possible.

To compile software, you need to install the  compiletc.tcz  extension.
Depending on the software, possibly some  *-dev.tcz  extensions, which can usually be determined easily by the error message provided when attempting to build it. It's possible that  unrealircd  doesn't have any compile dependencies other than those provided by  compiletc.tcz . At least I didn't get any errors.
