amsn problem


Hi, I just installed amsn, and I go into the directory. Then I type ./amsn and the program starts.. the only problem is when I click on the "click here to log in" thing.. the program shutsdown... and it says segmentation fault...

Any help would be appreciated.

Can you post the exact library/module name in which the seg-fault occurs? This would help us to pinpoint the problem...

I don't know exactley what you mean by that. What is happening is that i'm in the msn folder doing ./amsn, It starts the program, then when I click on the login button, it dissappears, and in the command prompt right after I did ./amsn, it just says segmentation fault.

I'm not sure about the error. Maybe someone else knows and I can do some checking later.

You might want to try attym
http://ayttm.sourceforge.net/

You can use your MSN, Yahoo, and AOL messenger accounts all at once. I just downloaded it two days ago and it works great.

warning: user colin does not exist - using root
warning group colin does not exist - using root
warning: user colin does not exist - using root
warning: group colin does not exist - using root

Does this mean I have to create a user and group names colin? or is there a way around this?

I installed the source. I usually do now. I find source packages have fewer problems.

if you do retry amsn, make sure you remove the hidden folder in your home directory when you retry to download/install it...cause if you don't remove the old settings then it won't matter how many times you download and retry to install cause it just won't work....the hidden folder will be called
.amsn

Are you talking about ayttm or amsn? For ayttm I dled the rpm first, but I got that weird error above, then I got the tar file, and I tried to configure .. that went ok, but then there were some make errors... when I tried to do make, and make install... and amsn, I got the recommended version of it, and it still has a segmentation fault when running it.

By recommended version do you mean the .tar.gz of 0.81?
