1 adx 30 ******************************* IMPORTANT *************************************
2    
3     ************ Note for those who don't bother reading docs ***************
4     * - Reading INSTALL is now a must, as the old DPATH is now specified *
5     * when configure is run. *
6     * You now need to ./configure --prefix="/path/to/install/it" *
7 michael 974 * - The old config format WILL NOT WORK. Please see etc/example.conf ! *
8     * - The old kline, dline, xline, gline format WILL NOT WORK. *
9 adx 30 *************************************************************************
10    
11     ALSO, IF YOU ARE UPGRADING YOUR CURRENT SOURCE TREE, AND YOU TRY TO BUILD
12     IN IT WITHOUT PERFORMING AT LEAST 'make clean', THINGS _WILL_ BREAK. IT IS
13     RECOMMENDED THAT YOU RUN 'make distclean' AND THEN RERUN './configure'!
14    
15     ******************************* REQUIREMENTS **********************************
16    
17     Necessary Requirements:
18    
19     - A supported platform (look below)
20    
21 michael 974 - A working dynamic load library
22 adx 30
23     Feature Specific Requirements:
24    
25     - For the SSL Challenge controlled OPER feature and encrypted server links,
26     a working OpenSSL library
27    
28 michael 974 - For compressed server links, a working zlib library and includes (zlib.h)
29 adx 30
30     - For encrypted oper and (optional) server passwords, a working DES and/or
31     MD5 library
32    
33     *******************************************************************************
34    
35     - See the INSTALL document for info on configuring and compiling
36     ircd-hybrid.
37    
38     - Please read doc/index.txt to get an overview of the current documentation.
39    
40     - There is also a mailing list for general discussion of Hybrid. To subscribe
41     to the Hybrid List, use this link:
42     https://lists.ircd-hybrid.org/mailman/listinfo/hybrid
43    
44     - To report bugs in hybrid, send the bug report to bugs@ircd-hybrid.org
45    
46     - Known bugs are listed in the BUGS file
47    
48     - If you run in to a problem you think may be specific to your platform,
49     check README.PLATFORMS for some hints.
50    
51     - SOLARIS USERS: this code appears to tickle a bug in older gcc and
52     egcs ONLY on 64-bit Solaris7. gcc-2.95 and SunPro C on 64bit should
53     work fine, and any gcc or SunPro compiled on 32bit.
54    
55     - DARWIN AND MACOS X USERS: You must be using at least the December 2001
56     Development Tools from Apple to build ircd-hybrid with shared modules.
57    
58     - TESTED PLATFORMS: The code has been tested on the following platforms, and
59     is known to run properly.
60 michael 1049 FreeBSD 3.x/4.x/5.x/7.x/8.0 (gcc only, TenDRA will work but only with the latest
61 adx 30 cvs version from ten15.org)
62 michael 1138 Linux glibc 2.2/2.3/2.10.1/2.12.1
63 adx 30 Solaris 2.6/7/8
64     OpenBSD 2.8-3.2
65     HP-UX 11.00-11.22
66     IRIX64 6.5.19 (gcc only; MIPSpro is unconfirmed)
67     NetBSD 1.4-1.6
68     Tru64 UNIX 5.2b (only tested with native cc)
69    
70     It probably does not compile on AIX or libc5 Linux.
71    
72     - Old Hybrid 5/6 configuration files are no longer supported. All conf
73     files will have to be converted to the Hybrid 7 format.
74    
75     - If you are wondering why config.h no longer exists, it's because most
76     things that were once in config.h are now specified in the 'general'
77     block of ircd.conf. Look at example.conf for more information about
78     these options. Many, notably syslog support and EFnet tweaks, are now
79     configure options (see ./configure --help for details.)
80    
81     - /etc/resolv.conf must exist for the resolver to work.
82    
83 michael 920 - Please read NEWS for information about what is in
84 adx 30 this release.
85    
86     - Other files recommended for reading: BUGS, INSTALL
