#97 ISpoofFile will not correclty parse path using ~/.oidentd.co

Engine (43)

ZNC 0.096 --

When specifying the following in znc.conf, idents were not spoofed on some irc servers.

ISpoofFile = ~/.oidentd.conf
ISpoofFormat = global { reply "%" }

The steps I used to setup oident were the ones here, http://en.znc.in/wiki/Using_ident_spoofs

/etc/oidentd.conf :
# Configuration for oidentd
# see oidentd.conf(5)
default {
default {
allow spoof
allow spoof_all
allow spoof_privport
allow random
allow random_numeric
allow numeric
allow hide

When changing to the full path for 'ISpoofFile' everything works normally and as expected. idents@ are spoofed correctly, example:

ISpoofFile = /home/user/.oidentd.conf

    Which value does $HOME have for you?

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    [ user: ~ ]$ echo $HOME


    psychon -- about 4-5 weeks ago we talked about this on EFNet in #znc -- I looked through the changelogs and didn't see anything about this being fixed.

    No idea what's going on. ZNC clearly is successfully writing something somewhere, else it wouldn't connect to IRC. Can you get a recent nightly and check via --debug what is being written where?

    There is nothing in any changelogs because I have no idea what the problem is (and because I didn't update any changelogs lately). Did we come to any conclusion about what has to be fixed?
