Why are the modules so difficult to install

Post by Alex » Mon Jul 31, 2006 11:41 am

Hello,

I'm trying to install a module, but it fails each time. Was looking on the module section but when looking at the link for the module, it doesn't show what module it is.

This is what I get when I try to download it:

Code: Select all

http://www.unrealircd.org/index.php?page=modules&mod=module&id=19
Isn't it possible to set from what url this imodule are and then just use eg: wget http://www.unrealircd.com/src/modules/m_ircops.c

Well I think it's setup that way so that you know that when you download/install a module the UnrealIRCd is not responsible if anything breaks. They don't take credit or responsibility for the modules which users add.

Well I found a place where it shows how to install the module, but the following command give this after downloaded it with this command:

Code: Select all

wget http://www.vulnscan.org/UnrealIrcd/modules/m_ircops-3.6.tar.gz
works ok and it tells me it is saved. When I then use the following command showed on Here

Code: Select all

tar -zxvf m_ircops.tar.gz
I get

Code: Select all

Error opening archive: Failed to open 'm_ircops.tar.gz': No such file or directory
So, I'm not sure what's wrong here. If someone know, it would be appreciated.

Yes in this directory:

Code: Select all

Unreal3.2/src/modules
which I understood should be the right one. If I'm wrong can you please tell me the right one :?:

Well I cam so far so the tar -zxvf m_ircops.tar.gz worked, but what does it means when it says:

Code: Select all

./build
and I type that, but then I'm told to set the full path, which I did, and got this:

Code: Select all

Enter the full path to your UnrealIrcd directory (ie: /home/blah/Unreal3.2)
which I did, but still get the same err. message.

Below is what it is told to do which I did:

Code: Select all

Install:
tar -zxvf m_ircops.tar.gz
cd m_ircops-3.6
./build
cd ~/Unreal3.2
make install
but it doesn't help much when I sat the path but still give a error message.

Kinda obvious, isn't it... You save a file named 'm_ircops-3.6.tar.gz' and then you try to extract 'm_ircops.tar.gz', no wonder it says file not found.

As for specific m_ircops instructions, I think the readme explains it all well.

Also, regarding urls. You can easily (w)get it, I improved that a few months ago.. You go the the module url (like this) and then you click the appropriate file (eg: the .tar.gz), then you get a dialogbox warning you it's a 3rd party module, the 'I accept' link is the one you can copypaste to use for wget purposes.
