5
6 ************ Note for those who don't bother reading docs ***************
7 * - Reading INSTALL is now a must, as the old DPATH is now specified *
8 * when configure is run. *
9 * You now need to ./configure --prefix="/path/to/install/it" *
10 * - The old config format WILL NOT WORK. Please see etc/example.conf ! *
11 * - The old kline, dline, xline, gline format WILL NOT WORK.
12 *************************************************************************

14 ALSO, IF YOU ARE UPGRADING YOUR CURRENT SOURCE TREE, AND YOU TRY TO BUILD
15 IN IT WITHOUT PERFORMING AT LEAST 'make clean', THINGS _WILL_ BREAK. IT IS
16 RECOMMENDED THAT YOU RUN 'make distclean' AND THEN RERUN './configure'!
17
18 ******************************* REQUIREMENTS **********************************
19
20 Necessary Requirements:
21
22 - A supported platform (look below)
23
24 - A working dynamic load library, unless
25 compiling statically, without module
26 support.
27
28 Feature Specific Requirements:
29
30 - For the SSL Challenge controlled OPER feature and encrypted server links,
31 a working OpenSSL library
32
33 - For compressed server links,
34 a working zlib library and includes (zlib.h)
35
36 - For encrypted oper and (optional) server passwords, a working DES and/or
37 MD5 library
38
39 *******************************************************************************
40
41 - See the INSTALL document for info on configuring and compiling
42 ircd-hybrid.
43
44 - Please read doc/index.txt to get an overview of the current documentation.
45
46 - A good place for general help, discussions, and suggestions for ircd-hybrid
47 can be found at http://www.forum.ircd-hybrid.org
48
49 - There is also a mailing list for general discussion of Hybrid. To subscribe
50 to the Hybrid List, use this link:
51 https://lists.ircd-hybrid.org/mailman/listinfo/hybrid
52
53 - To report bugs in hybrid, send the bug report to bugs@ircd-hybrid.org
54
55 - Known bugs are listed in the BUGS file
56
57 - If you run in to a problem you think may be specific to your platform,
58 check README.PLATFORMS for some hints.
59
60 - SOLARIS USERS: this code appears to tickle a bug in older gcc and
61 egcs ONLY on 64-bit Solaris7. gcc-2.95 and SunPro C on 64bit should
62 work fine, and any gcc or SunPro compiled on 32bit.
63
64 - DARWIN AND MACOS X USERS: You must be using at least the December 2001
65 Development Tools from Apple to build ircd-hybrid with shared modules.
66 Before then you MUST disable shared modules, as we do not have the proper
67 flags for cc(1) prior to that point to produce shared modules.
68
69 - TESTED PLATFORMS: The code has been tested on the following platforms, and
70 is known to run properly.
71 FreeBSD 3.x/4.x/5.x (gcc only, TenDRA will work but only with the latest
72 cvs version from ten15.org)
73 Linux glibc 2.2/2.3
74 Solaris 2.6/7/8
75 Cygwin 1.3.22 (no shared modules yet)
76 OpenBSD 2.8-3.2
77 HP-UX 11.00-11.22
78 IRIX64 6.5.19 (gcc only; MIPSpro is unconfirmed)
79 NetBSD 1.4-1.6
80 Tru64 UNIX 5.2b (only tested with native cc)
81
82 It probably does not compile on AIX or libc5 Linux.
83
84 - Old Hybrid 5/6 configuration files are no longer supported. All conf
85 files will have to be converted to the Hybrid 7 format.
86
87 - If you are wondering why config.h no longer exists, it's because most
88 things that were once in config.h are now specified in the 'general'
89 block of ircd.conf. Look at example.conf for more information about
90 these options. Many, notably syslog support and EFnet tweaks, are now
91 configure options (see ./configure --help for details.)
92
93 - /etc/resolv.conf must exist for the resolver to work.
94
95 - Please read RELNOTES and doc/whats-new.txt for information about what is in
96 this release.
97
98 - Other files recommended for reading: BUGS, INSTALL
