MBot on Freesco box

3rd Party Package Requesting

Postby MrWho » Thu Jun 20, 2002 11:33 am

There's this great irc bot made by a portuguese guy (can be found at <a href="http://darksun.com.pt/mbot/" target="_blank">http://darksun.com.pt/mbot/</a>) that I'd really like to put on my Freesco box.
If it's easy (not to me, I think, since I don't have other Linux boxes at home and can't compile it) and if it's at all possible, can someone make a pakage out of this?
Thanks.

PS: If permission is needed, I can talk with this guy, I'm sure he won't mind if someone does it.

Bump! :tongue2:

Yep, almost 2 years later and still I didn't loose the faith that someone will pick this up and port it! :D

Well, talk him into Freesco and maybe he makes the package himself! :lol:

What FREESCO version?
Do you need a package or is a tarball with the compiled binaries sufficient?

The tarball with mbot 5.0.0 can be downloaded (use snarf) via <a href='http://dingetje.homeip.net/tarballs/mbot-5.0.0.tar.gz' target='_blank'>http://dingetje.homeip.net/tarballs/mbot-5.0.0.tar.gz</a>

In case you want to use the ALICE module, you'll also need to get this:
<a href='http://darksun.com.pt/mbot/sources/alice.tgz' target='_blank'>http://darksun.com.pt/mbot/sources/alice.tgz</a>
It contains the necessary data files to get alice talking and dancing. :)
Just untar it in mbot's directory. Also don't forget to see the README.

>> QUICKSTART

- Copy all ./example/example.* files to ./bot_nick.* (one by one, and of
  course bot_nick can be any filename, but for clarity's sake you should use
  your bot's nickname)

- Edit bot_nick.conf and configure it to your needs, don't forget to change
  the filenames.

- Edit bot_nick.users and change the mask in it (mirage!*@*) to your
  own, like yournick!*@*, and DON'T touch or add anything else. This
  should be the only time you'll mess with the user file directly, because
  it's safer to use mbot's commands to configure things.

- Start the bot with './mbot -c bot_nick.conf'. Then, inside irc, do a
  '/msg bot_nick !pass foo'. Any password works, "foo" is just an example. It
  should say "Password correct". If not, try '/msg bot_nick !level' and make
  sure it responds with a "Access level 10, not identified.". If it doesn't,
  either the mask is messed up, or you didn't load any user file in the
  configuration file.

- Now at least change your password with !setpass, and use !help to explore :)

- If something goes wrong, try running mbot with the '-d' option, which turns
  on some debugging output and prevents it from forking into background. Also
  don't forget to look inside mbot.log for error messages.


The alice.tgz file is already in my mbot tarball, but I haven't tried it yet. In fact I've not tried anything, just compiled the damn thing.
In other words, you're on your own!

Have fun

Great!!!! :lol: :love:

I'm going to try it today as I get home from work!

I'm your #1 fan, Dingetje! :biggrin2:

EDIT: If someone using this bot needs to contact the author, I saw him last time on IRC on the irc.ptnet.org server, #coders channel.

Not yet. I've been browsing the forums, and I'm going to try and plug my old IDE ZIP for backup purposes (it's been sitting in a box for a couple of years now, I think I need to put it to good use).

I live here (center of the map, look for the bleep):

Sounds familiar? :)

I have updated the tarball. It contains the tcl.so loadable module now. You also need the libtcl8.x.so library file. This one can f.i. be found in the eggdrop package. If you don't have it, let me know.

Again: I only compiled it, did no testing whatsoever!
