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 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.

How to create a new #debian-* channel

  • Join the chan you wish to create (e.g.: /join #debian-foo)

  • Register the chan with a proper description: /msg chanserv REGISTER #debian-foo <description>. You are automatically added as MASTER.

  • Set the channel URL /msg chanserv SET #debian-foo URL https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Foo

  • Set the channel email /msg chanserv SET #debian-foo EMAIL https://lists.debian.org/debian-foo/

  • Add @debian-master as MASTER: /msg chanserv ACCESS #debian-foo ADD @debian-master MASTER

  • Add @debian-chanop as CHANOP: /msg chanserv ACCESS #debian-foo ADD @debian-chanop CHANOP

  • Add your channel to the list above.

  • Add your channel to your team or local group wiki page if appropriate.

  • Inform people about your channel via Planet Debian, DevNews, the mailing lists or the publicity team.

  • Enjoy your brand new chan!
