AIM on linux -- Command line? What command line? lol

Postby Iceman » Sat Apr 26, 2003 11:51 pm

Hey. Just dual booted my laptop to run SuSe Linux 8.1. Well, I love it, its really nice, so I'm trying to install some new things on it.

I downloaded AIM for it. Got the download sitting there on my desktop...

The AIM website's instructions: On the command line, type the rpm command as shown in the example: rpm -i aim-1.5.286-1.i386.rpm where 1.5.286-1 represents the AIM version and release numbers.


This makes no sense to me at all. What is the command line? Is it the console?

You might want to look for Gaim its a bit more supported in the community and its easy to use.

GUI = Graphical User Interface
CLI = Command Line Interface

Bash is a "shell" that you use to interact with the os on the CLI. TO answer your question the console is the commandline and bash is , more than likely, your default shell.

rpm -i "program name"
will install gaim assuming you dont need any depdencies to install it.

I believe I have gotten the hang of the terminal now. I got limewire running now. I would rather do gaim too, but it requires all these other additional packages. Well I downloaded these packages, but the installation of them is extremely vague.

I love those guys at sourceforge. They come up with all those cool stuff like Mandrake on Xbox and that cool prog that made quake really cool looking (forgot the name of it, though).

You can build GAIM from source. THat might work better for you ... its well worth the time as its THE AIM prog to use under linux (IMHO that is)

Would you mind briefly describing how I can build gaim from source?

cd to the directory. There should be a makefile prolly. YOu may need to change some settigns in there. Then type "build makefile.mak" (replacing with what it is called).

You dont CD to a file... you CD to a directory (CD = change directory). Say you extracted the source to /root/GAIM... do "cd /root/GAIM". Then "build makefile.mak" (or whatever the makefile is called).

or you can

cd /to/the/directory
./configure (with a --help if you need the options)
make
make install

pico INSTALL or README for more info(Case Senstive on ALL file names)
(emacs or vi if you feel risky)

Hmm, I have created some steps to help out n00bies to Linux. Here goes:

1. Turn on Computer.
2. Insert Windows XP cd.
3. Format HDD.
4. Install Windoze.
5. Enjoy an easier to use OS.


Im going to try Linux again in a couple years when Im more mature I guess.

Learn basic dos commands if you don't know them already. Linux command line is surprising similar to dos. After that, you'll learn simple things like installing software.
For most every program you download that's to be compiled, the following commands will normally work:

tar -zxvf filename.tar.gz
cd dirname
./configure && make && make install

If you really want to force yourself into learning, take a weekend off of your normal computer use, and try to install Gentoo linux (www.gentoo.org) If you can follow their installation instructions, you shouldn't have a problem using command line.. ever.
