Exclamation MSN Messenger RPM.....


Ok, I installed an instant messenger client that can connect to the MSN Messenger network (I have dumb friends), I installed the RPM, and now I cannot find the file(s) it installed so that I may execute them!

This may be a dumb question, but I am a newbie.....

well what is the name of the app you installed? You might just try typing the name of the program in the terminal and that MIGHT work. However, some apps are a little bit different.

OK, I forgot the name of the client, I think it had like two c's before msn (kinda like ccmsn er something). But the site I visited at Mandrake is not loading.... http://www.mandrakeforum.com/article.php?sid=2252
I don't think it was amsn, I saw a site for amsn and it was in German....

Start a rpm manager and find the installed package (amsn for example). Then view the file list and you'll probably see something like /usr/local/bin/amsn

Good luck

I also tried typing just "amsn":

Error in startup script: couldn't open "/usr/share/amsn/README": no such file or directory
while executing
"open "[file join $program_dir README]" r"
(procedure "cmsn_draw_about" line 18)
invoked from within
"cmsn_draw_about"
invoked from within
"if {$version != $config(last_client_version)} {
cmsn_draw_about

}"
(file "/usr/bin/amsn" line 2684)

Got that.....

If you are using a tar.gz file, I suggest you download the rpm package.
