Irssi



  • Was just wondering, is it possible to run irssi on the pfsense server with a screen?


  • Netgate Administrator

    There's a FreeBSD package for it. Install it and find out.  ;)

    pkg_add -r ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/ports/i386/packages-8.1-release/All/irssi-0.8.15_2.tbz
    

    Probably not a great idea from a security point of view. Don't try it on a production machine!  :P

    Sweet! :D
    nah, it's just a home router! :P
    Can i install it trough the webinterface or do i need to go onto install it trough the terminal?
    Also, is "screen" installed already or do i need to install it ?


  • Netgate Administrator

    Whilst you probably could do it through the web gui it's much easier from the terminal.

    I'm not sure about screen, I don't use it on pfSense.

    i got it installed, thank you! :D

    however when i try to start it by typing "irssi" i get
    /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/local/lib/libintl.so.9: unsupported file layout

    do you know why ? :/


  • Netgate Administrator

    Are you running 64bit?

    Steve



  • @stephenw10:

    Are you running 64bit?

    Steve

    ye, running AMD64 om a Dual core processor.


  • Rebel Alliance

    Then you need to install:

    
    pkg_add -r ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/ports/amd64/packages-8.1-release/All/irssi-0.8.15_2.tbz
    
    

  • Netgate Administrator

    You probably want to remove the wrong version first.

    pkg_delete irssi
    

    Not 100% on the syntax there!  ::)

    Steve


  • Rebel Alliance

    Yes, first remove the non working package, then install the Good one ;)

    If im not wrong, must bee something like:

    
    pkg_delete irssi-0.8.15_2
    
    


  • now i got the following error :/

    /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.1/mach/CORE/libperl.so: unsupported file layout


  • Netgate Administrator

    Has it correctly installed that perl library?
    If it has I'd say there's a good chance that it didn't uninstall the 64bit version of perl correctly.

    What do you have listed if you run: pkg_info

    Steve



  • you may need to uninstall all irssi depenecies that was installed i386 verson on x64

    this is dependecies listed in freebsd ports:

    A modular IRC client with many features
    Long description : Sources : Changes : Download
    Maintained by: vanilla@FreeBSD.org
    Requires: gettext-0.18.1.1, glib-2.28.8_3, gmake-3.82, libiconv-1.13.1_1, pcre-8.21, perl-5.12.4_3, pkg-config-0.25_1, python27-2.7.2_3



  • I tryed to remove both python and glib then irssi and reinstalled it, irssi installed python and glib now but i still get this error :/

    /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.1/mach/CORE/libperl.so: unsupported file layout

    irssi-0.8.15_2      A modular IRC client with many features
    python26-2.6.5      An interpreted object-oriented programming language



  • try with 8.2 packages, maybe it will work.

    but please, test on a non production server.



  • after reinstalling  glib-2.28.8_3, gmake-3.82 it now works, thank you guys so very much for the help, it's really appriciated :)


  • Netgate Administrator

    Nice one!
    Could have saved some time if I'd thought you may have been running 64bit in the first place!  ::)
    Actually I'm quite surprised it doesn't have some checks in the package sysetem to stop this happening. Lesson learned.
