Ive compiled eggdrop on my debian using:
apt-get install eggdrop

Now I logged into another account i want use with eggdrop and i type:
~$ eggdrop eggdrop/eggdrop.conf

Though I get errors:
Can't load modules dns: /home/eggs/modules/dns.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Can't load modules channels: /home/eggs/modules/channels.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The problem is modules arent in /home/eggs/modules because ive compiled eggdrop using root with apt-get. So what to do, to make it use with my eggdrop account?

I remember in gentoo you could type eggdrop-installer <botnick> and it would copy all needed files to your account, but in Debian... no idea.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Get the source code and compile it.. Why anyone packages it I don't know, just seems silly to me.

Or easier, locate wherever your package installed the modules, and edit the quoted section from your config-file accordingly:
Quote:
# This path specifies the path were Eggdrop should look for its modules.
# If you run the bot from the compilation directory, you will want to set
# this to "". If you use 'make install' (like all good kiddies do Wink, this
# is a fine default. Otherwise, use your head Smile
set mod-path "modules/"

apt-get install only downloads and installs a precompiled copy.

when i once installed eggdrop from a package they stuck the modules in /usr/lib/eggdrop

it not there try this in a terminal "find / -name channel.so"

I agree. Compiling from source is far better.

My suggestion:
Code:
apt-get remove eggdrop

wget ftp://ftp.eggheads.org/pub/eggdrop/source/1.6/eggdrop1.6.18.tar.gz

Debian (and Debian based systems) tend to shove stuff every where except the standard location(s).
