First of all, i'm a total noob when it comes to IRC and understanding the
subtleties of it.
However, i use ngircd in the simplest manner as possible just to have a chat
between friend, so nothing fancy, no password or anything.
It's working fine for me with version 21.
I updated to 21.1 and it's a no go for me. I can't connect anymore, i have a
"bad password" error.
I guess it's coming from this change "Don't ignore but use the server
password when PAM is compiled in but disabled.".
Did you check "ngircd --configtest"?
Please make sure that you havn't set any "Password" in [Global], and that
either havn't compiled in support for PAM (if you compiled it from source
yourself) or that you configured "PAM = No" in [Options] (if you are using a
binary that supports PAM).
