    I have a feeling that I've seen this one before -
    if so, then gaim is the one you want as the messenger equivalent.

    Gyach Enhanced(pY! Voice Chat) supports both sound and webcams:

    Gaim-vv supports webcams but no broadcast(only receiving) and no sound.
    However, it's on their todo list, so you can expect full support in the future.

    Yes, I had that same problem. So I tried all the different instant messengers on suse and gaim was the best.

    Start with their installation howtos, you have 3 ways::

    Using RPM:
    http://www.phrozensmoke.com/projects...all.php#gyachr
    (probably the easiest way, but IMO very unsafe since it uses the "--force" option to install them)

    Binary (.tar.bz2):
    http://www.phrozensmoke.com/projects...all.php#gyachb
    (Still easy and less unsafe than those RPMs with --force)

    Source:
    http://www.phrozensmoke.com/projects...all.php#gyachs
    (most optimal way, but probably a little hard for starters)

    Try to follow their instructions and post back if you get stuck.

    hmm, i've successfuly installed my yahoo messenger on linux. im using suse 9.3 and installed wel. no problem encountered with it. i just downloaded it over thenet then install it through yast. and then its gud to go.

    my only robem with linux now is how to use its networking with other linux PC and windows PC, and also, those games i loved to play wont run. i've tried it on wine and cedega, but ith no luck, it still won't run. geesh.
