Discussion tread Here

This contains the following
1. TCL
2. Egdropp
3. Crontab

TCL install

su root
mkdir /tmp/tlc
cd /tmp/tlc
tar -zxvf tcl8.4.16-src.tar.gz
cd tcl8.4.16/unix
make ( go eat some donuts )
make install

Tcl is now installed but linked linked libraries need to be added

Add: /usr/local/lib In the /etc/
VI or Nano works fine.

To see if you linking worked type ldconfig -v
At the end of the list, you can see
/usr/local/lib: =>

Eggdrop install ( as user )

Log into user (DO NOT run eggdrop as root, use another user, for security reason)

mkdir /tmp/eggdrop
cd /tmp/eggdrop
tar zxvf eggdrop1.6.18.tar.gz
cd eggdrop1.6.18
make config
make (quite long)
make install DEST=/home/user/eggdrop

Edit the config file of the eggdrop as usual

Using crontab

Crontab is usefull to start eggdrop and check from times to times if it's still alive

su root
cp /etc/crontabs/root /etc/crontabs/user

Edit /etc/crontabs/user, remove the existing cron (writing time)
Add the following lines :

0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /home/user/eggdrop/botchk >/dev/null 2>&1

Be sure to edit /home/user/eggdrop/botchk to match your eggdrop setup.

Reboot may be needed
