View Full Version : [ubuntu] ircd-hybrid issues

August 18th, 2011, 07:35 PM
I am very unfamiliar with compiling programs so I am going to post this in beginner.

I was able to use and connect to ircd-hybrid when I install it via apt-get. I wanted to be able to use ssl with it and after some reading found I had to download and compile it in order to get that support.

I followed the instructions in this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10624593&postcount=3

After it was done I renamed the example.conf and removed the line in it to make sure I had read it. When I start the program I get

ircd: version hybrid-7.3.0
ircd: pid 13902
ircd: running in background mode from /usr/local/ircd"

but a ps -e | grep irc returns nothing running.

I noticed that it was reporting that it could not find openssl when doing ./configure even though I specified the path. Same error as in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1706006&highlight=IRCD-Hybrid+OpenSSL I then tried to make it again without that but I have the same issues as before when trying to start it.

I know I have to be missing something, any help would be appreciated.
