    Default What happened to xchat?

    On my most recent TUMBLEWEED update xchat disappeared?
    I'm using xchat-gnome for now but it's missing much of the configuration abilities of regular xchat.
    It really doesn't fit the way I use xchat or how I have it visually configured.
    I've been using xchat for years. This is a very weird situation that is just suddenly disappeared from the repo entirely.
    Did the maintainer quit?

    Thanks for the reply.
    Both of those URLs give a 404.
    So that isn't really an answer to the question.
    I'm hoping someone know the actual status of xchat and what happened.
    A 404 is not promising.

    Hi
    It's been dropped, the replacement is hexchat. Discussion here: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-g.../msg00000.html

    Thanks Malcom that's quite helpful.
    I'm sorry to see it go. I've been using it since I started using Linux it seems like. That's a really long time.

    Hi
    Yup, me too... a little bit of configuration required, but look/feel is the same....

    it's still in the Gnome:Apps repo

    64bit
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...4.2.x86_64.rpm

    or add the repo and install with zypper


    Code:
