or maybe bitchx, although I stopped using bitchx when I realized that i had left a chat sesion with the parting message.  "Have you raped a lawn gnome today?" Shocked  Or even epic.  In short, I can't live without some kind of IRC client that I can use from a console.


 Smiley Thank you once again.

Here ya go! http://irssi.org/ should build easy enough  Smiley

Or you can search IRC in gslapt or slapt-get and use a client that's ready to go.  You may already have a couple installed.

Thanks.  I don't expect any problem with the build (though I've surprised myself in the past) but I didn't see anything that looked like a text based irc client when I searched the package manager.  It was all Xchat, Ksirc, Konversation, gaim...  and that's why I mentioned it.

Well, irssi was a very straight, no configuating, no problem 3 part install.  On the other hand, vpackager has been elusive.  I'm new to this planet.

Irssi - Compiles with no problems from source, really ... configure / make / make install and your finished - all depends for it seem to be met in a default install of Vector..
