I installed hybrid 7 ircd on my box last night I've been trying to figure this out for awhile. I configured everything (I'm still thinking what i'm looking for is in the config) The directory resides in /usr/local/ircd
When I run it; it will tell me this
ircd: version hybrid-7.0
ircd: pid 2347
ircd: running in background mode from /usr/local/ircd
So I'm going to assume that it's actually running.
But whenever I try to connect to the server via irssi & bitchX it says that localhost does not have port 6667 open. When I use nmap the port doesn't show up. I tried opening the port via inetd.conf that didn't work out to well..
I tried the same server daemon and got the same thing. There is no verbose mode either to try and debug why it won't start. You might be better off just getting ircd or dancer-ircd which I got both to work with no problems.
Nope it doesn't show-up, I tried IRCD and I don't even know what the funk happend there, everything got scattered around, it was kinda funny but a hassle at the sametime. I'll try out this .. dancer-ircd, thanks guys.

I have YDL 3.0 and installed hybrid 7 yesterday, using:
make && make install
Which appeared to go smoothly (to my untrained eyes anyway)
I now seem to have an /usr/local/ircd dir but I can't seem to find an ircd.conf anywhere. I have however got an example.conf (I have removed - havent_read_conf = 1; )
Should I simply rename it to ircd.conf
And can anyone help me with setting up ircd as a service (in the same way that httpd is a service, i.e. loads at boot time, can be stopped and re-started)
You can most likely copy the example.conf and customize it for your own ircd.conf file. To start on bootup, I've added it to my rc.local file using Slackware, not sure where would be best for YDL, never used it before
But somewhere in your startup scripts will do just fine. Also note that ircd can't or shouldn't be started as root, so in my rc.local file I put something like this to start it as the user nobody:
Yeah, should look something like this in your conf file under the auth section, last line there, just make the yes a no:
user = "*@*";
class = "users";
/* restricted: stop the client sending mode changes */
#restricted = yes;
/* have ident: require the user has identd to connect (OLD I: + flag) */
have_ident = yes;
