In fact it mostly compiles on ix, too. Just the problem is that wxWindows has a bug in 
stretching "wxStaticBitmap Controls". Thus my Skin System does not work. Well, 
someone could simply make a "native" skin that does not need strecthing of bitmaps 
but i did not have the time yet. Best would be to fix the bug in wxGTK or something.

At the moment I am looking for a CVS. wxSkabber source should become available 
because i do not have lots of time for coding atm and i do not have lots of experiences 
in Linux. Whatever it would have a very strict license that does not allow other ppl to 
use the code for commercial purpose. 

A license I would like is http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/1.0
Any suggestions where to get a CVS that accepts such a license?

Btw. there is one more wxWindows Jabber client done in wxPython and not c++ 
whatever I do not remember the name... there is a link on jabbercentral i think...
