Re: voice chat in centos 5.4 64 bit

can't find a package for RHEL5. best thing to do is use a src.rpm from fedora and compile on for RHEL5 (it should work), but i'm suspecting a lot of work for this.

if this is your desktop, perhaps you need to switch to a more desktop oriented distro like fedora or ubuntu, they have empathy included.

Shalom,

start out with firefox. It supports most gtalk features pretty well.

Re: voice chat in centos 5.4 64 bit

hi
thanks for your replies.
well since i dont get machines often to practice things at our office lab i purchased a athlon x4 620 with 6GB RAM. we are basically solution providers n i m a budding system integrator. :)
so i have installed centos 64 bit on the base and install OSes on VMWare workstation or Xen to test out stuff and understand OSs and products..

but at the same time @ home i need gtalk to keep in touch with family n friends, hence needed voice chat in gtalk.

compiling from the .src.rpm. i v not done it before. cud be a good weekend project. thank you for all ur help.
