Description of problem:
When ircII reconnects to a version 2.8 irc server, it fails to join the
original channels correctly, and appears to believe that there are no users
on any channels. Instead of producing the usual:
<nick> talk talk talk
(nick/#channel) talk talk talk
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect to a server, and join an active channel
2.break the link between client and server by some means
3.wait for the server to time the client out (ping timeout)
4.reconnect the link, wait for client to realise its lost the connection -
it will reconnect automatically.
Actual Results: client now believes that (a) no one is on the channel, (b)
displays conversation using (nick/#channel) format.
Expected Results: Client should be using the <nick> format.
I have a patch that fixes this problem and a src rpm located at:
ftp.linux.org.uk/pub/linux/rmk - in addition, the src rpm there enables
ipv6 support, so you may prefer to take the patch only.
Also fixed by ircii-20010612 (or -current), it's the latest released
version. They changed their numbering scheme so no new x.y versions
will be out, just ircii-yyyymmdd.
Crap, IPv6 should have been enabled in #35643 but wasn't..
ircii has been deprecated in favor of epic for future releases as epic is 99%
compatible but has some additional nice features.
