[SOLVED] Cannot compile ircII on Slackware


Slackware 12.0

I just downloaded the package (http://www.irchelp.org/irchelp/ircii/ircii-2.8.2.tar.gz), untar'd it and did ./configure which worked well then make, but it gives me this error:

Try executing this and then execute make again.
Code:
sed -i '/irc.h/ a\#include <termios.h>\' source/term.c

Thanks, that worked, but I'm wondering what exactly did it do?

All those variables that are undeclared are declared in termios.h. The sed simply added #include <termios.h> term.c so those variables would be defined. When you work with ancient software like ircii-2.8.2, you gotta expect issues.

What does this mean?
Code:
sed: 1: "source/term.c": unterminated substitute pattern
