phew! got my own copy of the new jabber server up and running today. it’s not that big a deal to install the thing. in hindsight. i had more problems getting jarl installed correctly. it requires a few special perl modules. in order to install those, i needed perl-devel package, which wasn’t apparent until i had performed the appropriate degree of cursing. hi. ho. in any case, i’ve got big plans for jabber services, so stay tuned.
