Thread: KMess doesn't start

  1. #1

    Default KMess doesn't start


    I'm using openSUSE 11.2 KDE 4.3.3 and I installed Kmess 2.0.2-2.23 with a 1-Click Install from the community repository.

    When I try to run it, I doesn't start. In Konsole, I get the following error message :
    kmess: symbol lookup error: kmess: undefined symbol: _ZN9QListData7detach3Ev
    I uninstalled the packages and tried a 1-Click Install from the Factory repository, but same problem...

    I would like to try this software which seems to be the most user-friendly clone of Windows Live Messenger for Linux.

    Thanks for helping me,

    Did you install this via rpm?

    I read this on a forum;
    Go into kmess source dir and check if cmake/ has exec permission; if not just do as user
    chmod 755 cmake/

    If you did install it via rpm, submit a bug report to the packager.
    Don't ask "if" something can be done, for it can always be done. Rather instead ask "How" can it be done.

    Thanks for answering so quickly.

    I installed it using 1-Click Install. I searched Kmess on this page :

    So yes, I guess it downloaded a rpm from the repository and installed it on my system.

    I also saw the thread on the forum, but it was about compiling. So there is a problem with the rpm ? How can I submit a bug report to the packager ?
