Jabber

I started playing phone tag with faeriechilde and decided it would be useful if I had access to the yahoo IM network again.

I then built my little debian packages of the jabber yahoo-transport. I even went as far as making an init script for it. After getting all that working I decided to make the debian package for JIT the new jabber ICQ transport.

Then I paged through my LJ friends list not only did I discovere that more of my friends seem to have yahoo messanger accounts than AIM accounts, I also added a bunch of you.

Perhaps I should figure out how to share my debian packages with the world. (Though for a true debian package, my default configuration files aren't quite up to snuff).

Also my jabber server doesn't currently support AIM, so I can't reach that network yet. (And instead of trying to install that software, I think I'm going to go to bed).

I don't suppose you'd be willing to help out a newbie trying to learn Linux? ;-)

I always like helping extend linux's market share. Anything in particular you'd like help with?

Yes. Right now I am having a hard time understanding how to use C++ to compile (is that the right word?) software I downloaded. I have downloaded the libraries, but I still get an error message about $PATH. I will have to duplicate the error message and let you know later. I'm using Mandrake 9.1, KDE on an AMD 500MHZ with a 32 MB video card, 192 MB RAM, and an 8.1 GB harddrive.

I downloaded everybuddy and WindowMaker and am trying to get those to work using ./configure which gives me the error message.

Thanks!
