Short for Internet Relay Chat.

This is a protocol for realtime chatting through a host server which allows many channels and many ways to annoy other users.

[IRC Channels] are typically recognized by the # prefix.

Different [IRC Networks] (which can have any number of servers) may host different channels of the same name.

{{{#!wiki debian
The Debian Project hosts all its development IRC channels on irc.oftc.net and also has a thriving community on irc.libera.chat. The Debian Project no longer has control of #debian on the freenode IRC network. If you're still using freenode, please move to irc.oftc.net (or its alias irc.debian.org)
}}}

= Introduction =

IRC (in OFTC's #debian*) is used to get on-line Real Time Help '''with Debian releases'''. If you're running other than stock Debian stable, testing, or sid, you should instead go to the forum which supports your ''non-Debian'' system. ''Debian-derived'' or ''Debian-downstream'' are not Debian. You'd get more relevant support for your release from its community, not via Debian.

{{{#!wiki debian
Read first: [[https://www.debian.org/support#irc]]
}}}

To connect, you need an [[IrcClients|IRC client]].

More information can be found on GettingHelpOnIrc. The #debian channel has its own [[DebianIRC|FAQ]].

The Debian Project hosts all its development IRC channels on irc.oftc.net and also has a thriving community on irc.libera.chat. The Debian Project no longer has control of #debian on the freenode IRC network. If you're still using freenode, please move to irc.oftc.net (or its alias irc.debian.org)

Introduction

IRC (in OFTC's #debian*) is used to get on-line Real Time Help with Debian releases. If you're running other than stock Debian stable, testing, or sid, you should instead go to the forum which supports your non-Debian system. Debian-derived or Debian-downstream are not Debian. You'd get more relevant support for your release from its community, not via Debian.

To connect, you need an IRC client.

More information can be found on GettingHelpOnIrc. The #debian channel has its own FAQ.

Debian IRC channels

The hostname irc.debian.org is an alias for irc.oftc.net. Most Debian IRC channels are on the OFTC IRC network:

#debian channels have a Netiquette.
