MSN Messenger Client

3rd Party Package Requesting

Postby noparking247 » Thu May 11, 2006 12:39 pm

I was wondering if anyone had enough free time to make a package of pebrot (a text based MSN client). I really have no clue how to do it, otherwise I would :-).

now why would you want to run a text-based version of msn on a router?
if you run an MSN client on a system, I would understand... but on a router?

The client seems to have a problem when running, it connects to msn but as soon as a key is pressed I get this error message (on my test machine, FREESCO 0.3.5 with python_2.2.2_dingetje) :
Code: Select all
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/pkg/bin/pebrot", line 16, in ?
    pypebrot.pebrot.main()
...
File "/mnt/bootdev/router/pkg/usr/local/python/lib/python2.2/site-packages/pypebrot/pebrot.py", line 1339, in handleInput
    if c in [curses.ascii.BS, curses.ascii.DEL, curses.KEY_BACKSPACE
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'KEY_BACKSPACE'


I'm not sure of what it means exactly (keyboard key code misinterpreted), or how to fix it, sorry.

I like to be able to SSH in from my laptop w/ mobile phone acting as the wireless modem. Saving bandwidth in situations like this is crutial, hence the text based program.
As for why I would have it running on my router, all other systems in the house are Windows, none of which are running any port of SSH and are powered off when nobody uses them.

:tongue2:

However, thanks for looking into it PHBC50. Perhaps it's just one of those things.
