As all the software I used so far on my RPi was from a list of software provided directly from DietPi, I checked, but didn’t find any IRC client, so I installed irssi.
The Server I was trying to connect to was banning me, as I was trying to connect as a root user. I created a new user with
adduser command, and now I can connect to the desired server with irssi. The problem is, as soon as I close SSH connection to my RPi, my IRC status goes offline.
Is there any way for irssi to stay up and running 24/7 with a logged-in user, so my status on IRC server never goes offline?
or you check if it is possible to run as
systemd service. Another option is to run the command to start IRC in background.
Thanks guys! I managed to detach irssi with tmux meantime, although I will have to see how to make it start and reconnect on a system reboot, because a power outage is not uncommon here.
It’s way easier with the offered software, as I assume everything is already set up to be perfect and beginner-friendly.
check if you can use systemd service. Or use cron to start stuff on reboot.
I always used screen but now I took a look into tmux, out of curiosity, and it’s brilliant!
I like the overview with
ctrl+B and also the preview when switiching between them!
