amsn .97 rc1

amsn .97 rc1 has been released. I am wondering if this (and the final release) will reach the fedora 7 repos.

I think amsn is currently the best way to webcam chat with windows users...

I'm using it too. I hope it will be included in the Fedora 7. I already got the RC1 running, which runs fine.

I posted a bug to bugzilla asking if they are going to but .97 in the repo. The maintainer responded saying it would reach the repos when the final release came out.

Is it worth upgrading in the mean time? Do the new voice chat features work well? Is anything else better?

Well, personally. I think it's a HUGE step forward (but that is just my opinion). If you don't know how to compile, I can help

Hmm, ok. I will try to compile it tonight - I'll let you know if I have trouble.

Ok I got it installed. It came in an autopackage, which was a first for me, but generally pleasant. It added some utility called 'manage 3rd party software' to my "system tools" menu that allows me to remove amsn. This seems like some sort of distro independent package manager...

Anyway, it looks nice. When I tried to set up audio it complained that I was missing the snack extension. Apparently you need libsnack.so. The only place I could find this was in a Fedora core 3 package from DAG http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/libsnack/ - it 'seems' to work though. I wonder if there is a better way to install this. Presumably when amsn .97 hits the fedora repos they will include libsnack?

You can download snack here (this is an official source):

I don't know if it's included (it was never included before...) . Perhaps you want to apply as a package maintainer ?

When I installed the Fecora 3 rpm it added a directory called /usr/lib/snack2.2.9 - so I removed that rpm, downloaded the package from the site you suggeseted, untarred it and moved the directory to /usr/lib .

I think this worked because the audio/video setup under preferences in amsn still worked.

This appears to still be a problem with the final version of amsn in the repos. Someone should package libsnack and tell the amsn developer to include it as dependency... (looks other way)

I don't know if it's an option. But normally you can use aplay. Like this:

Soundserver > Use Another Program > Command: aplay -q $sound

Will that help?
