- Update README files
- Remove README.PLATFORMS

1 ******************************* 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 * - The old config format WILL NOT WORK. Please see etc/example.conf ! *
8 * - The old kline, dline, xline, gline format WILL NOT WORK. *
9 *************************************************************************
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 - A working dynamic load library
22
23 Feature Specific Requirements:
24
25 - For the SSL Challenge controlled OPER feature, compressed and/or
26 SSL/TLS server links, as well as SSL/TLS client connections,
27 a working OpenSSL library is required
28
29 - For encrypted oper and (optional) server passwords, a working DES and/or
30 MD5 library
31
32 *******************************************************************************
33
34 - See the INSTALL document for info on configuring and compiling
35 ircd-hybrid.
36
37 - Please read doc/index.txt to get an overview of the current documentation.
38
39 - There is also a mailing list for general discussion of Hybrid. To subscribe
40 to the Hybrid List, use this link:
41 https://lists.ircd-hybrid.org/mailman/listinfo/hybrid
42
43 - To report bugs in hybrid, send the bug report to bugs@ircd-hybrid.org
44
45 - Known bugs are listed in the BUGS file
46
47 - SOLARIS USERS: this code appears to tickle a bug in older gcc and
48 egcs ONLY on 64-bit Solaris7. gcc-2.95 and SunPro C on 64bit should
49 work fine, and any gcc or SunPro compiled on 32bit.
50
51 - TESTED PLATFORMS: The code has been tested on the following platforms, and
52 is known to run properly.
53 (FIXME: this list is out of date)
54 FreeBSD 3.x/4.x/5.x/7.x/8.0 (gcc only, TenDRA will work but only with the latest
55 cvs version from ten15.org)
56 Linux glibc 2.2/2.3/2.10.1/2.12.1
57 Solaris 2.6/7/8
58 OpenBSD 2.8-3.2
59 HP-UX 11.00-11.22
60 IRIX64 6.5.19 (gcc only; MIPSpro is unconfirmed)
61 NetBSD 1.4-1.6
62 Tru64 UNIX 5.2b (only tested with native cc)
63
64 It probably does not compile on AIX or libc5 Linux.
65
66 - If you are wondering why config.h no longer exists, it's because most
67 things that were once in config.h are now specified in the 'general'
68 block of ircd.conf. Look at example.conf for more information about
69 these options. Many, notably syslog support and EFnet tweaks, are now
70 configure options (see ./configure --help for details.)
71
72 - /etc/resolv.conf must exist for the resolver to work.
73
74 - Please read NEWS for information about what is in
75 this release.
76
77 - Other files recommended for reading: BUGS, INSTALL
