Known Eggdrop Errors
There are a few known issues with Eggdrop v1.9.2
Compiling on OpenBSD
When compiling 1.9.2 on OpenBSD, you may encounter an error that looks like this:
Making core eggdrop files... cc -g -O2 -pipe -Wall -I.. -I.. -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I/usr/local/include/tcl8.5 -c bg.c In file included from bg.c:25: In file included from ./main.h:90: ./eggdrop.h:791:3: error: unknown type name 'pthread_mutex_t' pthread_mutex_t mutex; ^ 1 error generated. *** Error 1 in src (Makefile:83 'bg.o')
This is a result of OpenBSD handling libraries a little differently. You can workaround this by configuring Eggdrop with the following flag:
This will allow Eggdrop to compile, but you will not be able to take advantage of the asynchronous DNS capability. This issue should be fixed in 1.9.3.
Compiling without SSL/TLS Libraries
If the machine you are not on does not have SSL/TLS libraries installed (necessary for secure communications), you may encounter an error like this:
gcc -g -O2 -pipe -Wall -I.. -I.. -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I/usr/include -g3 -DDEBUG -DDEBUG_ASSERT -DDEBUG_MEM -DDEBUG_DNS -c botcmd.c botcmd.c: In function ‘bot_nlinked’: botcmd.c:726:53: error: ‘struct dcc_t’ has no member named ‘ssl’ 726 | addbot(newbot, dcc[idx].nick, next, x, i, dcc[idx].ssl); | ^ make: *** [Makefile:83: botcmd.o] Error 1 make: Leaving directory '/home/michael/projects/eggdrop5/eggdrop/src' make: *** [Makefile:251: debug] Error 2
gcc -fPIC -g -O2 -pipe -Wall -I. -I../../.. -I../../.. -I../../../src/mod -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I/usr/include -g3 -DDEBUG -DDEBUG_ASSERT -DDEBUG_MEM -DDEBUG_DNS -DMAKING_MODS -c .././server.mod/server.c && mv -f server.o ../ In file included from .././server.mod/server.c:154: .././server.mod/tclserv.c: In function ‘tcl_server’: .././server.mod/tclserv.c:534:38: error: ‘struct server_list’ has no member named ‘ssl’ 534 | snprintf(s, sizeof s, "%s%d", z->ssl ? "+" : "", z->port); | ^~
To resolve this, you must install a library that supports TLS (this requires root privilege to do).
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
yum install libssl-devel
pkg install security/openssl-devel
... then recompile to finish the install.
