openSUSE:IRC list

Jump to: navigation, search
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a great way to connect with openSUSE community members in real time chat and for support. IRC uses popular client software, such as konversation, kvirc, xchat or instant messenger clients that support the IRC protocol. All of them are included in openSUSE. Although chatting occurs in a group forum, you can also privately chat with online members.

Please take note of the IRC rules before you join.
