Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


[ Thanks to Russell Sprouts for this link. ]

"This month we're going to make our on-lives a little more social. We're going to install a program called Licq, a clone of the popular ICQ program. Unlike the previous articles, this time we're going to look at installing it from source code since that is how you will obtain most Linux programs from the Internet. Don't run off now. The task is not as scary as it may seem, it just takes a little longer."

"We will start by downloading the necessary file from the Licq homepage, http://www.licq.org. The site is laid out clearly, makes that easy. Right off the front you'll see a panel of buttons along the left hand side, one of those saying Download. We want the program as stable as possible, so we'll grab the latest stable release, 0.85. Click on the link and download the file to your directory of choice. In my case, it's going right into my home directory."
