It's not just pidgin or gyachi or zinc. It's yahoo chat in general. Yahoo has an annoying in browser chat client in the email that always logs me out of whatever client I'm using, and even that thing won't log in.
I was recently distro hopping and of course I ended up back at slackware 12.2 (I knew I probably would.) I've gone full out and reinstalled slackware three times in the past two hours just to see if I get this fukcing machine to connect to gorram friggen god dang mother fukcing yahoo chat, and so far no luck. Why would this possibly happen?
How the hell would I go about being able to use my dang ol' piece of crap mother fukcing chat again?
Thanks guys, I'm glad to know it's not just me. I was workin' on something when this happened and I was so paranoid it was a configuration issue on my end I was reluctant to go any further with it in case it affected multiple programs.
I'm just relieved it's not something wrong with Slackware. I appreciate y'alls help figuring this one out.
