Ayttm

Ayttm is a multi-protocol chat client. I have compiled the latest Ayttm out of CVS. Siddhesh is the current most active devloper (see my blog post a couple of days ago) and his latest code is in the 'libirc-mod' branch. For the record, this is how I got it:

# cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@ayttm.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/ayttm login
CVS password: [just press Enter]
# cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@ayttm.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/ayttm -r checkout -r libirc-mod ayttm
# ./gen
# make


I already had the Jasper package installed, which Ayttm uses to provide support for Yahoo webcam. Then to compile and install Ayttm:

# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-t2-linux-gnu --disable-esd --disable-arts --enable-webcam
# make
# make install


This will be in 4.1alpha4 instead of Pidgin.
