mbsebbs for Debian ------------------ MBSE BBS is installed to /usr/lib/mbsebbs. The user IDs mbsebbs and bbs are also installed for use by MBSE BBS but their passwords are not set as part of the installation.. The initial setup of MBSE BBS should be done by becoming the MBSE BBS system user (mbsebbs) and running the mbsetup program. That sets up any configuration files that are not already present. The first user added to the system becomes the Sysop by default, and can be done by logging in as the bbs user. The /usr/share/mbsebbs directory is where the standard language, menu, template, and txtfiles archives are installed during the package installations and/or updates. During an initial install, they are then copied to the standard /var/lib/mbsebbs/share/int directories for use by the MBSE BBS system. The standard html files are installed to /usr/share/doc/mbsebbs/html, with a softlink to there from /usr/lib/mbsebbs/html. An example crontab is available as doc/mbsebbs/examples/crontab.mbsebbs, which can be installed using the crontab command as the user mbsebbs. Configuring inetd or xinetd. For inetd; the information in doc/mbsebbs/examples/inetd.mbsebbs could be added to /etc/inetd.conf. For xinetd: the doc/mbsebbs/examples/xinetd.mbsebbs could be installed as /etc/xinetd.d/mbsebbs. An FTN nodelist is needed for the installation, when the system is configured for FTN uplinks. If you get an error message such as this when mbtask is started: IBC: no fido udp entry in /etc/services, cannot start Internet BBS Chat That indicates that the entry for it is missing from the file. Add a line such as this to the /etc/services file: fido 60179/udp # MBSE BBS Chatserver -- Robert James Clay <email@example.com> Mon, 08 Apr 2013 10:02:53 -0400
