    i did a build from the winex CVS when i was running SuSE 8.2 and i noticed that the binaries generated were regular wine binaries.. no special names or anything... so you might want to try just running

    Code:
    wine <program name>
    just an observation from someone who thinks he knows what he's talking about on occasion....

    Maybe I'm missing something here, but....
    Doesn't Gaim = Gnome AOL Instant Messenger

    Why do you need to pipe it thru Wine?

    i don't think he was piping it through Wine.. i think he just wanted to ask two questions in one place... and GAIM supports AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, MSN, and i think one or two other protocols...
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    OK

    I only use ICQ anyway, and my ISP seems to think IE is very important, so no Linux on the web for me!

    The reason most that you cannot log on to MSN is because MS have "banned" all other MSN clients than MSN Messenger.
