Download BitchX for Linux
BitchX is a terminal based IRC client with roots to IRCII (please pardon the use of the term `root` ;-)

Common problems include, but are not limited to the following:

  - Flood protection is set to maximum as a default.
    /set flood_protection off will fix you right up ;-)
        
- Auto Away settings. /set auto_away off or /set auto_away_time ### (in seconds)
- Nick completion. /set nick_completion off /set nick_completion_char (insert ascii character here) /fset format_away (Your away message here) default-> $nick is away: ($3-) $1 $2 ################################################### ## ##Sample ~/.bitchxrc ## (This file will help your BitchX survive ## the conservative no bold or anything channels) ## ################################################### SET AUTO_AWAY_TIME 1800 SET AUTO_AWAY OFF SET BEEP OFF SET DCC_DLDIR ~/bxdownloads SET FLOOD_PROTECTION OFF SET NICK_AUTO $0:$1- SET NICK_COMP $0:$1- SET SWATCH COLLIDE,KILLS,MISMATCH,IDENTD FSET AWAY is away: ($3-) [message log on] # Server aliases ALIAS US /server us.undernet.org ALIAS ARL /server arlington.va.us.undernet.org ALIAS ATL /server atlanta.ga.us.undernet.org # User aliases ALIAS WIN /window new hide ALIAS CP /ping $C ALIAS ICMPING /exec ping -c 5 $0 # Op aliases ALIAS LOG /m x@channels.undernet.org login $C $0 ALIAS OPME /msg x op $C $N #EOF ################################################## ## ##Sample entries for ~/.bash_profile ## ################################################## # A few IRC variables IRCNICK="YourNick" IRCNAME="This is what shows up in a /whois" IRCSERVER="us.undernet.org irc.yourserver.com:6667" export IRCNICK IRCNAME IRCSERVER #EOF

What is a KrnlPanic? Well, a KrnlPanic is me! Actually, let's start with "What is a kernel?". The kernel is the core of your operating system (OS), whether your OS is Linux, Unix or windows. The kernel takes care of all process management (what program runs and when), memory management (which parts of memory get used for what) and also, the kernel takes care of interfacing the OS with your computer's hardware (disk drives, sound card, modem, network card, etc).

Now...since the kernel is doing all of these extremely important jobs, it stands to reason that if it has an error, it will be a Bad Thing(tm). If you use windows, you know a kernel panic as a "BSOD" or Blue Screen of Death. Or how about "Invalid Page Fault in KERNEL32.DLL". I'm sure you've probably seen both of those. In Linux, a Kernel Panic is normally plainly stated so. At boot time is when you will see most linux panics. I have yet to see a linux kernel panic while the system is running. You may have seen "Kernel Panic: init not found" or "Kernel Panic: VFS unable to mount root fs on 2:00". All of these previously listed errors are because of something that happened to the kernel that it couldn't handle, whether it was an access to an invalid memory location or the inability to find the initialization files it requires.

I hope that sufficiently explains things. Oh yeah...KrnlPanic is also my name ;-)

- Rick
