10 | Note for those who don't bother reading docs: |
11 | |
12 | Reading INSTALL is now a must, as the old DPATH is now specified when |
13 | configure is run. |
14 | |
15 | - You now need to ./configure --prefix="/path/to/install/it" as a |
16 | minimum. Try ./configure --help or read this file for more info on |
17 | the possible options you can pass to configure. |

22 HOW TO BUILD
23
24 As of hybrid-4, the distribution uses GNU autoconf instead of the old
25 Config script. You must run ./configure before you can (sanely) build
26 ircd-hybrid.
27
28 1. Read the NEWS file to find out about the exciting new features in
29 this version. Other good reads are doc/reference.conf, and README.
30
31 2. Run the configure script. It will create config.h and the
32 Makefiles to match your system. The paths are now handled
33 with the --prefix option to configure.
34 /usr/local/ircd is the default if no prefix is specified.
35
36 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/ircd
37
38 The script will determine whichever of the following is best for
39 your system, but you may (unsupported) force their usage with
40 undefined results:
41
42 * --disable-kqueue - Disables the superior kqueue(2) system call as
43 opposed to the default poll(2). This is currently only available
44 on FreeBSD 4.1 or higher.
45
46 * --disable-devpoll - Disable the superior /dev/poll support on
47 Solaris. Linux /dev/poll is broken and will not work with this
48 option.
49
50 * --disable-epoll - Disables epoll(4) Signal I/O system. This is
51 currently only available on 2.5.44 Linux kernel versions or
52 later.
53
54 * --disable-poll - Disable POSIX poll(2).
55
56 * --enable-openssl - Enable the openssl dependent crypto functions.
57 Required for the SSL Challenge controlled OPER feature, compressed
58 and/or SSL/TLS server links, as well as SSL/TLS client connections.
59
60 On systems where the configure script can automatically detect
61 OpenSSL, this option is not necessary. If configure cannot find
62 OpenSSL, you must specify a path with this option
63 (--enable-openssl=/path/to/openssl)
64
65
66 These are optional or have default values that may be overridden:
67
68 * --enable-assert - Enable use of numerous debugging checks. This
69 should not be used on any production servers for maximum speed
70 so as to prevent cores from things that shouldn't normally happen.
71
72 * --enable-debugging - Prepares Makefiles to compile the ircd sources
73 with proper settings that are required for debugging purposes.
74 This switch basically sets CFLAGS to "-g -O0".
75
76 * --enable-halfops - Enable halfops (%, mode +h) usage. Halfops
77 are similar to plain ops, but can't kick/deop plain ops. Halfops
78 may or may not kick/deop other halfops depending on if (+p) is
79 set. Halfops may not set (+/-p).
80
81
82 3. Run 'make'; this should build the ircd.
83
84 4. Run 'make install'; this will install the server, modules, and tools
85 in the path with the prefix specified when configure was ran.

89 HOW TO GET HELP
90
91 - Send Check or Money Order to... just kidding! You're on your own for
92 support. Try asking other ircd-hybrid admins on EFnet if you can't
93 fix it yourself. If you do fix anything, however, please send context
94 or unified diffs to bugs@ircd-hybrid.org so the fixes can be
95 incorporated into the next release of ircd-hybrid. If hybrid crashes
96 on you, PLEASE contact bugs@ircd-hybrid.org ASAP with a backtrace of
97 the core. The Hybrid team can't fix bugs if no one tells us about them!
98
99 - https://lists.ircd-hybrid.org/mailman/listinfo/hybrid
100 Here you can subscribe to a mailing list for general discussion of Hybrid.

104 NOTES
105
106 The best way to get a backtrace of the core is to follow this sequence of
107 instructions:
108
109 1. Change to the directory containing the core file
110
111 2. Run gdb on the binary and the core file. With an unmodified ircd-hybrid
112 installation, an example command line is below (in the /usr/local/ircd
113 directory)
114
115 $ gdb bin/ircd ircd.core
116
117
118 3. At the "(gdb)" prompt, enter the command "bt full"
119
120 4. Save the output of the backtrace command and send it to
121 bugs@ircd-hybrid.org.
122
123 5. Be sure to save the ircd binary, the modules, and the core file in a
124 safe place in case the developers need to look deeper than a backtrace
125 provides.
