As you can read on gaim.sf.net, Gaim 2.0 beta 1 has been released. I’ve compiled it under Ubuntu Dapper, which is not as magic as you may think.
# apt-get build-dep gaimAfter that, remove the NSS-library, because otherwise compiling may fail.
# ./configure… will do the rest of the show.
# make install
As mentioned before, from now on, I’m using Skype. Skype is just a fallback-solution, because there isn’t a real open solution with an open protocoll and free software. But this won’t take too long, ‘cause on friday the Gaim-project is going to release version 2.0. It ships support for Google Talk and – not important for myself – support for MSN video and such stuff. So, if all is working fine, at the end of the week I will be able to use a better solution.
