I'm getting this error while running the eggdrop bot, while loading the http.tcl script:

conflicting versions provided for package "http": 2.7.5, then 2.5.2

How do I fix this?

I don't understand the question. Can you provide some output showing the problem? – glenn jackman Mar 28 '11 at 17:44
More context like OS, and a link to this eggdrop thing would be helpful too. And some information about package http as well, since that is referenced in the error message. – Faheem Mitha Mar 28 '11 at 17:48
what is your $auto_path, and show us the command you use to load http.tcl (load, package require, ?) – glenn jackman Mar 28 '11 at 19:41
isn't eggdrop a technology used in chat clients to launch various malware, etc (It probably also has a positive use. Maybe 'meeeeeee' can enlighten us.) – shellter Mar 29 '11 at 22:39

The problem is, that the command "package provide http X.Y.Z" is executed twice, but with different version numbers. Have a look in your pkgindex.tcl and fix the version numbers.
