If you're already familiar with NetBSD, this information may not be particulary new or useful to you. It's not particularly Atari-specific. I do however use this for my own reference when I install NetBSD/atari.
ngIRCd is a small, easy to configure IRC daemon.
- cd ~
- ftp ftp://ngircd.barton.de/pub/ngircd/ngircd-[version].tar.gz
- progress -zf ngircd-[version].tar.gz tar xpf -
- cd ngircd-[version]
- ./configure CFLAGS="-Os -m68030 -m68881 -fomit-frame-pointer"
- su to root.
- make install
- vi /usr/local/etc/ngircd.conf
- Set options appropriately.
- Exit and save vi.
- In /etc/rc.local, add:
if [ -x /usr/local/sbin/ngircd ]; then
- To start the server, either just reboot or run /usr/local/sbin/ngircd.
- Exit out of root.
- See http://ngircd.barton.de/ for more information on ngIRCd.
- Avoiding use of rc.conf / rc.d because even with the appropriate option enabled, ngIRCd doesn't seem to be properly generating its pid file. I assume the pid file is necessary to shut the server down nicely. But what's it matter anyway, it's just an IRC server, it can just die when the machine reboots.
