irssi missing files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:07 EST
Description of problem:
I've a new fresh install of Fedora Core 4, with all packages installed from the
I've installed irssi with yum who get it from the extra's reps. When trying to
load module script, i'm getting this error:
Irssi: Error loading module script/core:
/usr/lib/irssi/modules/libscript_core.so: cannot open shared object file: No
such file or directory
I figured out that i should try to compile it myselves to se what error messages
i got. Here is the result: http://idarlund.stud.hive.no/make_error_irssi_FC4
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): irssi 0.8.9-7 from
Additional info: It may be an easy solution to this, eg. let us know what
package contains libscript_core.so :)
A friend of me was the first to discover this bug. And the first to fix it, hehe ;)
Here is what we did:
1) when we tryed to load script module we got an error that libscript_core.so
2) since he is a curious person he just tryed /load aaa, then he got this
strange message; libaaa_core.so was not found.
3) This seemed pretty strange so he desided to take a look in the
/usr/lib/irssi/modules/ folder to see what files it contained, we found
libfe_perl.so and libperl_core.so.
4) You've probably figured out by now what we did; /load perl :) as simply as
that. Irssi loaded:
22:06 -!- Irssi: Loaded module perl/core
22:06 -!- Irssi: Loaded module perl/fe
5) /script load my_1337_script.pl :)
Anyway.. we don't know yet why the compiling didn't work. And to the Fedora
team; why didn't FC4-extras-irssi load the perl module after the first install?
It did in the dag repo for FC3..
Hope this helps for all the other peoples that get the same errors as we got.
Btw. Sorry my bad english. Hope you all atleast understand it =)

Irssi compiling with gcc4
To compile irssi with gcc4 for fc4, use this patch.
This will be the final comment i hope, as long as i/we don't find any other
problems about the same issues.
To compile irssi manually with gcc4 you'll need the patch i attached here. But
for all lacy people, you can get the *svn* rpg from
giving dubkat credits for this package ;)
More information about the gcc4-compiling-bug can be found at
http://bugs.irssi.org/?do=details&id=219, it's fixed in revision 3726
Ups.. seems like the patch was corrupt while trasfered. You can get it here;
