help channel

Hi Eduardo, seems that #olpc-help is back as the help channel, sorry about making you change away from it.

Both would be bad choices. Traffic may be heavy. Splitting things up by language will help greatly. That means #olpc-en, #olpc-es, #olpc-pt, and so on. If traffic might still be heavy very, splitting on country may be good to. That means #olpc-en_US, #olpc-es_MX, #olpc-es_AR, #olpc-pt_BR, and so on.

when i click on the .xo link i get taken to a page with a bunch of links some of them are terminal.xo links and there a couple versions of xoirc.xo 3 and 4

yep, install the xoirc .xo file with the highest version number.
thanks!

conf

The readme suggests doing /pyeval urk.userpath to find the location of the .conf file, but that doesn't work. changing it to purk.userpath gives me a more hopeful error, but I still can't find it. I'd like to use XoIRC to connect to a server that's NOT freenode by default, and can't seem to figure out where I'm going to need to edit. It looks, oddly, like the use of a conf file has been coded out? --MozTom 02:38, 16 March 2008 (EDT)

In lieu of urk.conf

You need to edit lines 36 & 37 in XoIRC.activity/xoircactivity.py in order to change the server and channel that XoIRC defaults to. It currently reads as follows:
client.add_channel('#olpc-help')
client.join_server('irc.freenode.net')
While you're at it, you will probably want to alter the "default" nickname. Look in XioIRC.activity/purk/irc.py for line 71, which reads:
nicks = [user_nick]
...and insert this after it:
nicks = [XoIRC_User]
Unfortunately still I haven't found a way to send commands as soon as you log onto your IRC server, so you'll still have to /msg NickServ IDENTIFY manually.
You could install an IRC client more to your liking by using yum, but be aware that if you do, it'll have to be sugar-free.

IRC / IM gateway

This also works great as an IRC client to use im.bitlbee.org to access IM account (Jabber/AIM/MSN/etc.) with benefits of low bandwidth to the irc server.

Way late and I doubt folk'll see this but.

I was wondering a few things:

  • Is there a patch to fix the display of/me actions that is duplicating when the action is something done by other people?
  • Is there a way to dismiss the channel bar activity notices when you switch to the channel so that you can know the next time there is activity?
  • Is there some sort of way to connect to more than one server?
