Instructions on how to run aMSN on WeTab:

The WeTab Meego uses rpm, much like Fedora, and has a lot of helpful packages available.

1) Root the device (install the Root application from the WeTab Market). This will install a terminal where you can sudo.

2) Open the terminal from your desktop.

3) sudo yum install subversion tcl tcl-devel tk tk-devel gcc gcc-c++ make libjpeg-devel libv4l-devel

4) Install aMSN SVN : svn co ; cd amsn ; ./configure ; make   (Or just compile the latest version from source)

5) Since I don't think you'll want to run aMSN from console every time, create a desktop icon using the instructions here:

* exo-desktop-item-edit -c ~/.appdata/tiitoo-pinnwand/tiitoo-localbookmarks/
* Fill in the dialog with details (important: the Command must be /home/YOUR_USER/amsn/amsn )
* cd ~/.appdata/tiitoo-pinnwand/tiitoo-localbookmarks/
* cp ~/amsn/skins/default/pixmaps/amsnicon.png .
* vi aMSN.desktop
* replace the icon you chose with amsnicon.png
* sudo killall tiitoo-pinnwand

( instructions taken from )

6) You'll also need the TLS package, and I don't think it's provided so you'll have to fetch it yourself.
* cd ~/.amsn/plugins    (create the directory if it doesn't exist)
* wget
* (since wget is stupid and doesn't use the right filename) tar xvfz download-tls.php\?arch\=linuxx86     (Or just downl<tab> )

7) That's it, you can click the aMSN icon on your desktop and start it!

I also couldn't find a libsnack package available so you won't be able to use sound clips, if you're really interested, feel free to try compiling it and let me know how it goes. Smiley

note, you need to install gcc-c++ not gcc-g++ since that package doesn't exist...
