Hi Axelle,

I think that part of the configuration issues might be due to the lack
of the patch.  The paths.c file contains paths where hyperion-ircd
looks for files, and if unpatched, it looks at the wrong places.

In the OpenCSW case, it looks like a problem to set up the paths
correctly.  Looking at paths.c, Hyperion assumes that all paths are of
the form ${prefix}/directory.

#define DPATH    PREFIX "/"
#define SPATH    "sbin/hyperion-ircd"
#define CPATH    "etc/dancer-ircd/ircd.conf"

In our case, we have prefix=/opt/csw, but sysconfdir=/etc/opt/csw, so
it's /etc${prefix}, not ${prefix}/etc.

I tried to hack it by setting the paths by using ".." segments:

I've built an experimental CSWhyperion package, it's available from here:

The build description is available here:

To install the experimental hyperion packages:
pkgutil -t http://buildfarm.opencsw.org/opencsw/experimental/maciej -i hyperion
