are you sure you DO want to make a brand new IRC server?

However i would use just an editor like vi and a compiler like gcc
Seriously talking... if you want to make an IRC server which work good also under stress conditions i think you should just write in C and use Unix Sockets... Nothing more!

Snake, you might want to look into Bahamut (http://bahamut.dal.net/). It doesn't have an rpm, but it does have a page about how to install and set it up under the documentation section.

Be warned that IRC servers are the most commonly attacked hosts on the Internet. You might want to read up on security....a lot.
