Gaim supports msn.

well its the gaim that came w/ suse 9.0 personal. I just ran online update and it ran a package update for gaim....*fingers crossed*


Edit Nope POS still doesn't work. Same stupid error...protocal not supported. How do I fix this? I looked for another version of gaim, couldn't find one my system agreed with. I used amsn w/ redhat a long time ago but I can't seem to figure that out either.

Can't you install from the Platform-independent source RPMs?
Still, it's odd. I remember that problem, but that is quite a few versions back. You are not just having trouble because MSN is unstable these days?

Do you have SSL installed? You'll need that for MSN

I had the same issue last night.

I'm also disappointed with the 5 post min of this forum. I was typing away my problem, nice and detailed regarding VNC and tried to post - wham - "too bad you can't post cause you are a newbie". Yikes. Hit the back button and all info was lost.

I think it is to discourage commercial spammers. They take up a lot of space at other sites.

That's exactly what it's for. As for MSN, it's been having issues for awhile. Verify here.

Yup - figured that- I was just all disgruntled at the time of that posting. I understand completely. I've been using this site almost exclusively to build up two SUSE 9.1 Pros (1 home, 1 work) for eventual conversion of me from a Windows guy to Linux - just plain ole tired of Windows issues. Pretty much anything I searched for - I ended up here to get the answer - many many thanks.

does anyone else have the problem when they try to run amsn in suse 9.2 and it says it doesn't have the "wish" command , or some such tale relating loosely to that? or is it just something i've done incredibly wrong?

I've been using Kopete without issue on 9.2.

I can't seem to get amsn working.

From /opt/amsn/FAQ

If wish command doesn't exist, then you don't have tcl/tk correctly installed.
If "wish amsn" works, but "./amsn" doesn't, edit 'amsn' file and set the
correct path to 'wish' in the first line. By default it's set to:
/usr/bin/wish

Not sure if that helps at all.
