Both ersions 2.5 and 2.7 are located in separate folders.I log in as my own user account and sometimes as root. What should I do to install VYQchat on Linux? Please help me by providing step-by-step instructions to install this chat software.
Thanks

try to dload the ready compiled .rpm-file(s) [rpm based distros) and then

install it as root via

rpm -ihv packetname

for source-files do a ´configure - make - make install´ , but read the README or INSTALL before!
