When I got this computer GAIM worked fine. and it still does except for MSN. it connects for about one minute and then disconnects me.
the Debug log says:
account: Disconnecting account 0x97d8b50
connection: Disconnecting connection 0x9ac3420
server: removing NOP
msn: destroy httpconn (0x994e4d0)
connection: Destroying connection 0x9ac3420
I looked at how to upgrade GAIM thinking tht might help but I seem to be lost on how to do that.
I tried to install MSN with WINE but got an error aboutnot being able to detect Internet explorer.
So then I thought, since I use mIRC (also with WINE) that I could just use one of the MSN add ons. but no matter which one I use I get ewrrors. the most common one is:
* No such Com 'auth' open (line 15, msnauth2kxp.mrc)
the password i'm entering is correct since I can login to passport from the website.
out of pure desperation I tried to use the web messenger... I got "Your web browser is not supported by this version of MSN Web Messenger"
I really don't care HOW I connect to MSN messenger. I don't need the web came or file sharing.. just basic chatting. Can someone walk this newbie through how to install MSN in one form or another?
