can any one help me please? i downloaded an msn client which requires the libGLcore.so.1 library in red hat. i have searched google.com/linux for a long time, but i cant find anywhere to download the file. where can i get this file from and how would i install it? i have NO experience using the 'make' command, and i have only been using linux for about 6 weeks. please help.
i use gaim at the mo. it crashes tho, and doesn't have features like change alias. i am looking for a replacement for gaim, and i came across kmess, so i thought i would try it, but i cant get it to work.
red hat comes with a java virtual machine. but the java msn client on source forge cant find java. any idea's how i could fix that? or would i have to download the JRE from sun? i cant compile source files either, because i dont know how.
