Installing XChat on Debian Stretch


Debian Stretch comes with no XChat in the main repository. However, it is available in the stretch-backports repository.

To enable stretch-backports, edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list and add:

deb stretch-backports main

Then update the local apt registry and install:

apt-get update
apt-get install xchat -t stretch-backports

Alternatively, there is HexChat that is a fork of XChat. HexChat is available in the main repository and can be installed by using the command:

apt-get install hexchat
