I have been trying to install GAIM, but I was running into alot of dependancy issues.
So... to try to get this done, I pulled up YaST and changed my installation source to the FTP servers listed here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=253645
Doing a search brought up GAIM no problem, and I was able to install it through YaST.
However, now when I try to launch GAIM, nothing happens!
There were a few errors during the installation as reported by Yast, and here they are:
