Differences between the pkgsrc installed InspIRCd and a tarball installed InspIRCd

  • The tarball install installs InspIRCd locally under your username. Pkgsrc installs InspIRCd globally, and installs it to a location where it may be launched by any user (/usr/pkg/bin) for their own local use.
  • The tarball install places your configuration files under (PREFIX)/conf, where (PREFIX) is usually in the form /home/username/inspircd. The pkgsrc install instead places your configuration files under /usr/pkg/etc/inspircd.
