Please provide more information. Do you know where the executable is? Does it crash whenever you try to start it? Most Unix-based systems store their executables is /usr/bin or /usr/share/bin or /usr/local/bin, so look there if you can't find it.

I don't know much about whereis, but it's probably the same as locate: it uses a database that's indexed the filesystem. If the database is out of date, for example, installing irssi, then either you will need to update the database, or use the find command.
Updating the database: updatedb (w/ root privaleges)
Using the find command: find / -name "irssi" (root privaleges not necessary)

Ok, I have find it now but I can't start it. It says in the README that I need GLib to compile irssi. How do I know if I have glib? If its to any help I have SUSE 10.0
