This is a short post to show how I got XChat 2.8.8 on MeeGo.
You will need to download the SRC.RPM file from http://xchat.org/files/binary/rpm/
sudo zypper in rpm-build perl-ExtUtils-Embed tcl-devel openssl-devel libtool libsexy-devel gettext bison gtk2-devel glib2-devel GConf2-devel
rpmbuild –rebuild xchat-2.8.8-0.fc13.src.rpm
sudo rpm –install xchat-2.8.8-0.i386.rpm
Now a new entry should appear on the Internet category for XChat.
