We might be able to help, if you actually provided some information. Like what error(s) you're getting, maybe??

You say you can't log in...set up a new account with the correct user name and password. Without knowing more about the problem, there's very little else we can offer.

ok skiwish... are you trying to access the msn at work? if not, do you have a firewall installed? that might be blocking the connection.
Good Luck!!!!

thx but as per my understanding it's not matter of firewall or incorrect operate but it's some other issue. My friend also has same problem that amsn dos't work on fedora 10 but it works on his other pc that has suze 10.

The Solution.

It is very simple. Go to URL "http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy-backports/amsn-data" and download and install the amsn-data deb package. After installation, login will be OK...
