Alrite, I just downloaded the kmess rpm from sourceforge... Mmm im the ultimate newbie? I dont know how to run the program now...
i went to the dir i downloaded it in konsole, and typed in rpm -i rpmnameofkmess.rpm and it seemed to install it, got no errors, although I did get some lib errors or something when I first tried with out being in root. But in root it seemed to work. Please help. I feel pathetic.
