Is mIRC made for a Linux machine? I have Redhat 8.0 and would like to get mIRC on it. I know that there's an buildin mIRC in the Mozilla browser, but i dont know how to use it, because it dosen't understand the regular commands like /join (/j) #NetGamerZ.dk

Hope to get an answer soon.

from the mirc faq :

6-3 Is there a version for Windows CE, WebTV, Mac or Linux?

No, sorry. mIRC just comes in two tastes for Windows; a 16 bit and a 32 bit one. These issues will work on Windows 3.x, Windows 95, 98, 2000, ME, XP, and NT, but not on Windows CE. mIRC also does not work on the Atari, Commodore, WebTV, Macintosh, UNIX or Linux operating systems. We have no plans to make mIRC versions for these systems in the future either. Sorry....

The program included with Mozilla, is NOT mIRC. It is a chat client called Chatzilla. If you want to use IRC under Linux, I would recommend xchat which you can get at www.xchat.org

I really hate that system that you are using. Lunix and redhat that is what my school is using and it is one of the thinks i hate the most out of all operating system. Its annoying and not very usefull.
But I think it is only made for windows, but the commands are almost just like shell. I really recomend you to throw out that operating system and use Windows. I am pretty sure you wont regret it. grin

I know im also a windows lover! But the thing is, that i would like to run a Counter Strike server, and for that system Linux is the most secure and stable operation system! So thats how simple it is smirk

And by the way, IT FREE unlike Windows !!

Well if you are running a server it's stability would be assured if you were only using it for one task, regardless of what OS you use.

I had a windows XP uptime (until i lost power--not OS at fault) that far surpassed two friends of mine running mandrake and redhat.. Windows only crashes because the user is unknowledgable, not because the operating system is bad.

Windows XP Pro is what I use. And Windows is buggy now and then, it's not always user ignorance for others. Keyword: always.

If you have a high uptime on your linux box, all that means is you have an outdated kernel (and probably one of the ones that mangles filesystems...)

I promised myself that I wouldn't get involved in ye 'ole which OS is better debate, but here goes...

If you have a high uptime in Windows it means you haven't updated anything... I swear it forced me to reboot after Windows Update added an icon to my Start menu. With *nix the one and only time you have to reboot is if you want to load up a different kernel... I can even run off of the old kernel entirely in memory while it has been removed from the HD and replaced with something else. (translation: reboot when I decide)

My POV is that each OS has it's merrits and a user should pick what's best for their situation... Windows makes a great end user graphical OS, and a very awful server, while the reverse is true for *nix.

When I install windows xp I don't have to deal with things like creating ext2, swap,ect.. partitions or with the confusion of deciding whether to put lilo in the first boot sector or the mbr. The windows install is very straightforward and user-friendly. Linux is not!
