How do I install amsn?

Hi,

I'm a newbie with arch and I was previously using Ubuntu.

I want to install aMSN svn version but I don't know the proper way to do this in arch. In ubuntu it was pretty easy to create a deb package but how do I create a package for arch?

I first tried to install 0.96 using the following guide: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ams … ased_fonts

but when I try

# cp -R /var/abs/community/x11/amsn .

well the directory doesn't exist and anyway I prefer to get a newer build and not 0.96

Thanks

BTW I really like Arch, it just took me like 4 hours to get a GNOME desktop, lol, damn ATi .

Re: How do I install amsn?

You need to enable community first in /etc/abs/abs.conf. Then run 'abs' again and you should have /var/abs/community/x11/amsn afterwards.

Re: How do I install amsn?

[root@inspiron abs]# pwd
/var/abs
[root@inspiron abs]# ls
PKGBUILD.proto  devel    install.proto  local       office  x11-drivers
base            editors  kernels        multimedia  system  x11-libs
daemons         extra    lib            network     x11
[root@inspiron abs]#

Should I have anything special in my pacman config or any other file? or maybe it is somewhere else?


EDIT:
I'll try it, thx

EDIT:2

It is working but now how do I get amsn svn?
