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.

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 ?
