Gabber 2 requires libsigc++ 1.2, gtkmm 2.0, gconfmm 2.0, and libglademm 
2.0. freshrpms.net has these dependencies for Red Hat/Fedora users.

Gabber 2 *CANNOT* be installed simultaneously with Gabber 1. The second
you type 'make install' you are overwriting your Gabber 1 binary. If
you wish to 'make install' Gabber 2, then be kind to your system and

would be the wise thing to do, as it is far from a 2.0 still), Gabber 2
will run just fine as ./src/gabber from within the source directory.
Just be sure you 'make install-schemaDATA install-data-local' so that
Gabber's GConf data is properly installed.

Gabber 2 is available in JabberStudio CVS as modules 'jabberoo' and
