    Surprised/Amazed

    does anyone know of any irc clients that run on linux? (Mandrake in particular)


    any help would be appreciated

    Peace

    There should be irc clients included on the latest mandrake public realease discs even.

    If I'm not mistaken.

    Just go to install/remove programsin rpmdrake and search for irc. I'm fairly certain it came included with the 10.1 CE release I had installed a while ago.

    i hadn't had time to look properly yet cos i had no internet with linux till now so hadn't checked what all was there yet (stupid dial up modems) but now am back at me aprtment i had a chance to look and found one installed with mandrake - kopete (IM prog- works with IRC... just dunno bout file transfer on irc yet)

    tanx for the suggestions tho, i'll look into them if i don't like the irc interface on kopete
