Unhappy Cant install AMSN in KNOPPIX (DAPPIX)


Hi !

I am currently using Windows XP Pro, not that I'm proud of it though.

Well, I went on to the danish Linux site (Linux.dk) and discovered Knoppix (Dappix, the danish version).

I wanted to log on to my MSN account, but I couldn't. So, surfed the web a little, and found out that many talk about aMSN, so thought I would try that. But I can't install it, I don't know how.

Will someone please help me ?

Hello
I suggest downloading the tarball, and then compile the source.
Compiling the source is usualy:
./configure
make
make install
Or you could use apt-get(i atleast think they have it because knoppix is debian based) to download aMsn.
Good luck.

Compiling means, from a source code, making an executable.
Compiling is usualy(type that in a console):
./configure
make
make install
Check the readme file or install file how to compile, if there is no such file, compile using the above way.
