Ok, just need to bitch a little. Installed a clean copy of current this morning, and lo and behold no Xchat 1.x port! Bastards.

If you have ports installed:
cd /usr/ports/net/xchat
make install
If you don't have ports, you may want to download ports.tar.gz from an official OpenBSD mirror or download the xchat package from an official mirror and then use pkg_add to install the package.
Look at http://openbsd.org/ftp.html for the list of mirrors.

Looks like they are migrating xchat2 to xchat in current ports. I see (http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/ports/net/xchat/Makefile?only_with_tag=OPENBSD_3_6) that it's 1.8 in 3.6 so you could probably put the 3.6 version in there and get away with it (probably :squarewin ). Of course that would only work for so long.

Hopefully 2.x gets to a point that you are happy with it. I used xchat 1.x for a little while and then moved over to 2.x. The changes didn't bother me too much but a lot of longtime users hated it. I later discovered the joy of running irssi with screen. Now I just run that from a jail on my fileserver and can connect to my IRC session from any machine or anywhere. :rainbow:

Whatever you end up doing, come by and hang with us on irc.freenode.net #screamingelectron some time. Like you were going to do anything productive with that time anyway. :rainfro:

I was able to get the src thank god, and compiled. But still, sheesh...xchat2 sucks unmentionable things.
