Funtoo boot-update provides a unified mechanism for configuring the GRUB 1.9x ({{Package|sys-boot/grub}}) and GRUB 0.97 ({{Package|sys-boot/grub-legacy}}) boot loaders. It is the recommended, official way to configure Funtoo Linux systems for booting.
 
  
== Current Version ==
+
=== Description ===
 +
irssi is a small command line IRC client based on ncurses. It's a great thing to use when you SSH into a server, or just simply for your main IRC client.
  
* {{Package|sys-boot/boot-update}}
+
=== Installation ===
 +
The install of irssi is pretty straight forward. There are not many USE flags, but one that is worth looking at is the {{c|SSL}} flag. This enables you to use SSL when connecting to servers.
 +
{{console|body=
 +
###i## echo "net-irc/irssi ssl" >> /etc/portage/package.use
 +
###i## emerge irssi
 +
}}
 +
=== Using irssi ===
 +
Using irssi initially can be a little intimidating if you're not used to command line programs. To first start irssi, you just simply run:
 +
{{console|body=
 +
$ ##i##irssi
 +
}}
 +
There are flags you can pass to the command line while starting irssi, such as:
 +
{{console|body=
 +
$ ##i##irssi -n mynick -c irc.freenode.org
 +
}}
 +
This would connect you to Freenode with the nick 'mynick'. Or alternatively you can just run the {{c|irssi}} command and connect via SSL if you need to:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/connect -ssl irc.freenode.org
 +
}}
 +
This will automatically connect you over port 6697.
  
== Man Pages ==
+
When you have connected to the server of your choice, you can join a channel simply by:
Consult the following man pages for detailed, up-to-date information on configuration file settings and command-line arguments:
+
{{file|body=
 +
/j #funtoo
 +
}}
 +
If you want to leave any channel you've entered you can use the {{c|part}} command:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/part #funtoo reasons...
 +
}}
 +
There are a few ways of navigating through your channels, you can use {{c|alt+<nowiki>{1-9}{q-p}</nowiki>}}, or alternatively you can use the {{c|window}} command that is in irssi:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/window 1
 +
/window 2
 +
/window 3
 +
}}
 +
For as many channels you are apart of.
  
* boot-update(8)
+
When you're ready to leave, you can simply type in:
* boot.conf(5)
+
{{file|body=
 +
/exit
 +
}}
 +
Which will close out connections to the IRC networks you've joined, and take you back to your console window.
 +
=== Themes and scripts ===
 +
==== Scripts ====
 +
There are a few things you can do to make irssi look a little bit better and add some cool features. There are a few plugins that are pretty useful, such as {{c|fnotify.pl}} which is a script that utilizes {{f|libnotify}} to send you popup notifications for when your nick is pinged or you are sent a private message.  
  
== GRUB 1.97+ Quick Start ==
+

+
</console>
+
Due to an issue with <code>grub-legacy</code>, you may see the following message:
+
<console>
+
###i## grub-install-legacy /dev/sda
+
The file /boot/grub-legacy/stage1 not read correctly.
+
</console>
+
Should you receive this message, you will have to install <code>grub-legacy</code> from the grub shell.
+
Assuming <code>/boot</code> is the partition <code>/dev/sda1</code> and you want to install grub to the MBR, you would run the following:
+
<console>
+
###i## grub-legacy
+
root (hd0,0)
+
setup (hd0)
+
quit
+
</console>
+
When adjusting to fit your setup, remember 'root' is the location of your boot partition, 'setup' is where you want to install grub, and don't forget about grub's unique naming conventions for hard drives / partitions. For more information run:
+
<console>
+
###i## info grub-legacy
+
</console>
+
  
Ensure that <tt>/etc/fstab</tt> is correct, and edit <tt>/etc/boot.conf</tt> to reflect your installation. Ensure a <tt>generate grub-legacy</tt> setting in the <tt>boot</tt> section. Then run:
+
sub filewrite {
 +
my ($text) = @_;
 +
# FIXME: there is probably a better way to get the irssi-dir...
 +
        open(FILE,">>$ENV{HOME}/.irssi/fnotify");
 +
print FILE $text . "\n";
 +
        close (FILE);
 +
}
  
<console>
+
Irssi::signal_add_last("message private", "priv_msg");
###i## boot-update
+
Irssi::signal_add_last("print text", "hilight");
</console>
+
 
This will auto-generate the <tt>/boot/grub-legacy/grub.conf</tt> required for booting. Note that <code>grub-legacy-0.97-r11</code> and later stores <tt>grub.conf</tt> in the <tt>/boot/grub-legacy</tt> directory.
+
#- end
 +
}}
 +
Another very useful script is for colored nicks, to better tell people apart. Which can be found at [http://scripts.irssi.org irssi scripts] called {{f|nickcolor.pl}}. 
 +
 
 +
When you have the scripts you would like you would put them into {{f|~/.irssi/scripts}} and set a link to {{f|~/.irssi/scripts/autorun}}.
 +
{{console|body=
 +
$ ##i##wget -O ~/.irssi/scripts/nickcolor.pl http://scripts.irssi.org/scripts/nickcolor.pl
 +
$ ##i##cd ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun
 +
$ ##i##ln -s ~/.irssi/scripts/nickcolor.pl .
 +
$ ##i##ln -s ~/.irssi/scripts/fnotify.pl .
 +
}}
 +
You can do this for as many scripts as you've chosen to use. They will automatically load when you start irssi. You can also manually load scripts:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/load ~/.irssi/scripts/fnotify.pl
 +
Irssi: Loaded script fnotify
 +
}}
 +
Whichever works best for you is what you should do.
 +
==== Themes ====
 +
You can choose from many themes on the [http://irssi.org/themes irssi themes] page if you don't like the default look of it. Once you've chosen the them you like, you can simply put it in your {{f|~/.irssi/}} directory and when you run just run:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/set theme mycooltheme
 +
}}
 +
And there you have it, the theme you have chosen is now there.
 +
=== Conclusion ===
 +
irssi is a great IRC client, and really helpful if you spend a lot of time in a terminal emulator or on a server.  
  
Re-run <tt>boot-update</tt> every time your available kernels / initrds or <tt>/etc/boot.conf</tt> configuration changes.

Description

irssi is a small command line IRC client based on ncurses. It's a great thing to use when you SSH into a server, or just simply for your main IRC client.

Installation

The install of irssi is pretty straight forward. There are not many USE flags, but one that is worth looking at is the SSL flag. This enables you to use SSL when connecting to servers.

# echo "net-irc/irssi ssl" >> /etc/portage/package.use
# emerge irssi

Using irssi

Using irssi initially can be a little intimidating if you're not used to command line programs. To first start irssi, you just simply run:

$ irssi

There are flags you can pass to the command line while starting irssi, such as:

$ irssi -n mynick -c irc.freenode.org

This would connect you to Freenode with the nick 'mynick'. Or alternatively you can just run the irssi command and connect via SSL if you need to:

/connect -ssl irc.freenode.org

This will automatically connect you over port 6697.

When you have connected to the server of your choice, you can join a channel simply by:

/j #funtoo

If you want to leave any channel you've entered you can use the part command:

/part #funtoo reasons...

There are a few ways of navigating through your channels, you can use alt+{1-9}{q-p}, or alternatively you can use the window command that is in irssi:

/window 1
/window 2
/window 3

For as many channels you are apart of.

When you're ready to leave, you can simply type in:

/exit

Which will close out connections to the IRC networks you've joined, and take you back to your console window.

Themes and scripts

Scripts

There are a few things you can do to make irssi look a little bit better and add some cool features. There are a few plugins that are pretty useful, such as fnotify.pl which is a script that utilizes libnotify to send you popup notifications for when your nick is pinged or you are sent a private message.

fnotify.pl (perl source code) - fnotify.pl

$VERSION = '0.0.3';

    }

	print FILE $text . "\n";
        close (FILE);
}
 
Irssi::signal_add_last("message private", "priv_msg");
Irssi::signal_add_last("print text", "hilight");
 
#- end

Another very useful script is for colored nicks, to better tell people apart. Which can be found at irssi scripts called nickcolor.pl.

When you have the scripts you would like you would put them into ~/.irssi/scripts and set a link to ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun.

$ wget -O ~/.irssi/scripts/nickcolor.pl http://scripts.irssi.org/scripts/nickcolor.pl
$ cd ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun
$ ln -s ~/.irssi/scripts/nickcolor.pl .
$ ln -s ~/.irssi/scripts/fnotify.pl .

You can do this for as many scripts as you've chosen to use. They will automatically load when you start irssi. You can also manually load scripts:

/load ~/.irssi/scripts/fnotify.pl
Irssi: Loaded script fnotify

Whichever works best for you is what you should do.

Themes

You can choose from many themes on the irssi themes page if you don't like the default look of it. Once you've chosen the them you like, you can simply put it in your ~/.irssi/ directory and when you run just run:

/set theme mycooltheme

And there you have it, the theme you have chosen is now there.

Conclusion

irssi is a great IRC client, and really helpful if you spend a lot of time in a terminal emulator or on a server.
