    Hello forum.

I also have the same kind of problem and I'm unable to find good
pointers right now. As conf doc suggested, I created mech.conf from
scratch (keeping eye on sample.conf though).
So I have this line in mech.conf (and mech.session):
server 6667

If I say `netstat -n -p |grep 666`, I see only my irssi client and
eggdrop bot (which I'm desperately trying to get rid of) connecting
to such port.

I also tried with other servers such as undernet server in sample.conf
by adding them in mech.session.

I'm thinking the problem might be in DNS resolving. I've added
dnsserver (from my /etc/resolv.conf) and even dnsroot lines in the
mech.conf and always removed mech.session afterwards. Debug feed also
says my that dnsroot option was interpreted correctly (according to the
spam ;)

But even after this I get debug such as:
(rawdns) questions
(rawdns) questions
(select_rawdns) removing qid 28766
(rawdns) questions
(select_rawdns) removing qid 18999
(select_rawdns) removing qid 16215

Which should not be

Any pointers or advice?

    Just "walking by" to tell that I "fixed" it by recompiling without dynamic
DNS support. I don't know if I'm missing some very fancy feature, but at
least it connects now.

Still don't mind if someone wants to shed some light about this issue :)
