Installing without libuuid

Installing Dependencies

First we install the dependencies:

$ doas pkg_add cmake e2fsprogs sqlite3 libidn udns botan2 git

Building

Next, we download, unzip, and extract the tarball; then we build biboumi:

$ ftp https://git.louiz.org/biboumi/snapshot/biboumi-9.0.tar.xz
$ unxz biboumi-9.0.tar.xz
$ tar xvf biboumi-9.0.tar
$ cd biboumi-9.0
$ cmake . -DWITHOUT_POSTGRESQL=1 && make

Configuring Biboumi

Here is a sample configuration:

hostname=irc.example.com
password=PASSWORD
xmpp_server_ip=127.0.0.1
port=5347
admin=admin@example.com
realname_customization=true
realname_from_jid=false
log_file=/var/log/biboumi.log
ca_file=/etc/ssl/cert.pem
outgoing_bind=192.0.2.1

you can also make biboumbi to connect to *only one* server, by adding:

fixed_irc_server=irc.ircnow.org

Make sure to replace irc.example.com with your actual hostname, and replace admin@example.com with the admin's actual jid. Replace 192.0.2.1 with your public (ddos-filtered) IP address.

require_cert_revocation_info = false
use_ecc_point_compression = true

Configuring XMPP Server

Prosody

For install, you will need to update /etc/prosody/prosody.cfg:

Component "irc.example.com"
        component_secret = "PASSWORD"

Replace irc.example.com with the hostname above.
