LAN messenger needed.......


Can anyone help me in finding a LAN messenger for suse 9.1 prof

I have used gnomemeeting but in it only 2 persons can chat at a time. Also i have tried xipmessenger but it crashes out very often since it is for 8086.

Please help me out guys as i have tried a lot searching for it on the web but in vain.

Also do tell me where can i get the PWLib headers from??? As it is needed by gnome meeting 1.0.2 while compilation......

Would ytalk work for what you're doing? Not entirely sure what a LAN messenger is, but that's what came to mind...

Well its a messenger to communicate with another computer using the same messenger (like yahoo). But in this case without using the net only thru the LAN.

I work in a city administration; there are departments here experimenting with Linux. They are expecting to incorporate Akeni, but I'm not sure how free it is... as in beer and freedom.

Gaim is brilliant for MSN, ICQ and that kind of protocols, but I have never been satisfied with the IRC part. XChat, the old classic, would still be my recommendation.

For IRC, chatzilla is quite good, and it has the advantage that if you've mozilla already installed, you probably have chatzilla too
