I give up!
After trying to get licq 0.76 running on 'Drake 6.1, including binary and source, I have given up and will stick with the Java client. I think the final sticking point was after upgrading libstdc++ from 2.9.0 to 2.9.5 thus breaking PowerChute, installing the two qt2 rpm's, I still could not get the binary to work nor could I get the source to compile.
Read first, no gripe necessary!
If people would take the time to read the entire post, instead of reading only what looks interesting, they would note Jeff identifies the writer at the beginning of the article and a bio follows at the end. Perhaps a course in reading comprehension should be offered to CS folks as well!
