Gaim


I have downloaded GAIM from //ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/packages/gaim/, is it the "gaim-1.2.0-0.0.rh9.r..>" ??? I am using red hat 9.

Furthermore, after i downloaded the "gaim-1.2.0-0.0.rh9.r..> ", i was not able to install it. I mean nothing really happen, just a window appear then disappear quickly. When i run my GAIM again, it still does not have the MSN protocol, just the ICQ/AIM and TOC.

Please help, thank you

Try installing as root from the command line with
Code:
rpm -Uvh gaim-1.2.0-0.0.rh9.rf.i386.rpm
Report any errors back here as there is most likely a dependency problem. Remember as well, your version of GAIM will only have support for whatever protocols were enabled at compilation time. This means that whoever compiled your version of GAIM decided not to enable MSN support for whatever reason.

I think Redhat 9 can use yum or apt4rpm. Search LQ for how to install yum or apt4rpm on Redhat 9 (google it if you have to as well). Then check freshrpm's instructions on how to add their repositories to yum or apt4rpm. Then you can easily install programs using yum or apt (again search LQ if you have to); both yum and apt automatically resolve dependencies for you.

I have install yum on my redhat 9 now. I have also added the repositories to yum by adding this command to the /etc/yum.conf

[freshrpms]
name=Red Hat Linux 9 freshrpms
baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/redhat/9/i386/freshrpms

However, when i try to install GAIM by "yum install gaim", this error occur

warning: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 731002fa
Error: Could not find the GPG Key necessary to validate pkg /var/cache/yum/redhat-updates/packages/gaim-1.0.2-0.FC0.90.0.legacy.i386.rpm
Error: You may want to run yum clean or remove the file:
/var/cache/yum/redhat-updates/packages/gaim-1.0.2-0.FC0.90.0.legacy.i386.rpm
Error: You may also check that you have the correct GPG keys installed

And when i try "yum update gaim", the same thing happens.

Please help. Thank you

If you want to just bypass the gpg key check temporarily go to the yum config files ( found in /etc/yum* ), and change all the lines that say gpg check = 1 to gpg check = 0. Then it won't check for the keys and should work no problem.

Hope this helps,

Alunduil

No problem, I remember the difficulties I had with yum back in my fedora days. Just stick with it, and it will all work.
