  1. Will GyachE or GyachI allow me to make PC-to-phone calls?
    I have some money on my Yahoo Voice account.

  2. It works better than many other Instant Messengers. Keep the good work up! I am yet to achieve success with web camera with this IM.

    Best Wishes

  3. Gyach Enhanced is a jacked up program that many can not even use.
    I would like to slap the mummy dust outa da bytch that made it.
    For someone just starting out on linux don’t bother trrying to install that crap on your linux.
    9 out of 10 times it will not install or you will get errors.
    Just like alinux stay away from it,its crap.

  4. I try it before, it come with ubuntu, or maybe i accidentally installed. The web cam works but not audio conf is not.

    Gaim is lightweight and stable, but do not support audio and video conf, some how the development team do not want it to dirty the performance of Gaim.

    Alternatively, I uses skype-static + amsn. I don’t like amsn, feel it is creepy, but it support web cam.
