I think you have to install gcc for c++ compiler ..

i managed to compile it before but it needed the TLS library, which I downloaded (tried both versions, old 1.4 and new 1.5)

i pointed aMSN to the right path (/opt/tls1.4 etc.) as it asks, and yet it still refused to beleive that the tls library was there, so i gave up

also the auto-downloading install thing for tls doesn't work, you have to get it from the sourceforge page.

I made sure i had the Development packages install ( its in add remove packages ) and it all worked fine :D

I installed aMSN for FC4 and I was getting the TLS error as well, to fix the problem i typed "yum install amsn" in the console and it worked after that!
