AMSN trouble


I get this when trying to start it.

[root@h24-82-209-124 amsn]# wish amsn
Error in startup script: can't read "xml_attrs(-1_trace)": no such element in array
while executing
"set trace $xml_attrs(${id}_trace)"
(procedure "sxml:arse" line 19)
invoked from within
"sxml:arse $skin_id"
(procedure "load_smileys" line 13)
invoked from within
"load_smileys"
invoked from within
"if { $initialize_amsn == 1 } {
###############################################################
create_dir $HOME
create_dir $HOME/plugins
..."
(file "./config.tcl" line 933)
invoked from within
"source [file join $program_dir config.tcl]"
(procedure "reload_files" line 19)
invoked from within
"reload_files"
(file "amsn" line 177)

Can someone point me in the right direction please

perhaps it would be usefull to re-install the program (or the latest version), since this looks a lot like a script problem.

And off course, you could contact the author if the program doesn't get away; it will help him to improve the product. (remember open source is all about this kind of feedback)


finally, there is something I noticed; you're running this program as root. It would be better to login as normal user, and keep away from the root account as much as possible. (only of changing system configuration, or installing programs, you could use "su" to switch to the root user.) Running a program as root gives it the license to kill your system. (ie. the security level of an Windows 9x system)

I usually do I was only trying it as root as I got similar problems as user and was just making sure it wasn't a permission issue.thanks for the reply.I have also sent away a request to the author.Edit: I'm an idiot I had it in a location it wouldn't create the proper directory on the install.Working fine now.
