    trying to get this eggdrop working, i installed from the ports tree (v1.6.15) copied the sample configuration file to /usr/local/etc/eggdrop.conf and started editing it. now when i run eggdrop i get this;
    Code:
    -bash-2.05b$ eggdrop 
    
    Eggdrop v1.6.15 (C) 1997 Robey Pointer (C) 2003 Eggheads 
    [12:03] --- Loading eggdrop v1.6.15 (Sat Jul 17 2004) 
    [12:03] Module loaded: dns* * * * * * * 
    [12:03] Module loaded: channels* * * * 
    [12:03] Tcl error in file '/usr/local/etc/eggdrop.conf': 
    [12:03] no such channel record 
    * * while executing 
    "channel set #area51net +dontkickops" 
    * * (file "/usr/local/etc/eggdrop.conf" line 638) 
    [12:03] * CONFIG FILE NOT LOADED (NOT FOUND, OR ERROR) 
    -bash-2.05b$
    
    nb. i put this here because the conf file is a tcl script, which in my mind is coding. If its wrong then move it over to the bsd :)

    do you have a channel add #area51net section in the file above it??

    typically though its better to only channel add and channel set one channel, then once the bot is all loaded up just add channels to it via telnet or DCC Chat

    STARTING BOT IN USERFILE CREATION MODE.
    Telnet to the bot and enter 'NEW' as your nickname.
    OR go to IRC and type:  /msg tkbot hello
    This will make the bot recognize you as the master.
    
    You have installed modules but have not selected an encryption
    module, please consult the default config file for info.
    -bash-2.05b$
