Can anyone tell me how to setup IRCD and OIDENTD?

can someone help me please? I’m trying to setup an IRC server and I’m just stuck as stuck can be… :shame:

The oidentd daemon seems to be running, I guess.
But when I try to run the IRC daemon is gives me an error,

3xg:/var/log # ircd
WARNING: running ircd with uid = 39
changing to gid 65534.
Fatal Error: Invalid sid specified in ircd.conf

I have no clue on earth or this universe what that means or what to do about it.

I really, really need to get this thing going but I have no idea what I’m doing wrong.

I would be really, really grateful for any help anyone can provide.

Thank you so much!
