Sorry if I'm posting too often. I've recently fallen down the rabbit hole of modern use of PowerPC again, and want to know what IRC clients are still any good. I tried xchat aqua, it failed during install. Discord is neat, but I'm mostly looking for IRC. Do any good ones still work?

Xchat-aqua works if you find the right version.
LimeChat works. (Leopard only)
Adium with irc plugin works. (Leopard only)
MacIrssi works.
Conversation works.
Irssi built via macports works.
Weechat built via macports works.

Cheers

Xchat aqua won't install. I think I have the right one (powerpc, leopard)

It just goes "command not found" over and over.
