    Ok I lost 2 days with that !!

    Why do you package a .DEB you did not test ? Manual in ircd-hybrid (README.debian) says it’s easy to enable SSL : I see no error message, no open SSL port !

    What don’t you just write in documents : SSL unavailable in the package, it is impossible to activate it without building the archive .gz from the original team which did not commit for 290 days !

    Hope you’ll read my last two posts about Debian on my blog.
