You go to gtk.org and go to the download page and get the glib-x.x.tar.gz anbd compile that for glib, but you need pkgconfig first too. Compile pkgconfig with ./configure, make, and then make install.

Does anyone know what they are talking about? I am a linux newb myself and I have tried everything you have stated and none of it works.

Once I am in the gaim directory I type ./configure and it tells me unknown command. WTF?

install it using rpm from here :
http://www.usr-local-bin.org/gaim.php

look around on the site if you're using an older version of suse...i'm using 8.2, and i was able to download and install everything i needed to get gaim up and running great in less than an hour..after spending DAYS trying to download and configure all the "dependencies"....and messing with the tar.gz files...rpm is the way to go

ok, this is very confusing, and i want to help

first, i need to know exactly what your are trying to install, and then tell me exactly what the problem is

all i can say right now is that you need to learn the cd, ./configure, make, and make install commands (all those are typed into the console to make it magically do magic)

for example, when you open up a terminal, you are in your home directory
when you did the tar -zxvf, it untarred (similar to unzip) the file and makes a new directory

cd means change directory, you should type cd gaim-0.72
then, you should be able to type ./configure and it will configure the program install scripts for you (configure is actually a script that comes with the program, some programs however don't have one and that's why it will tell you ./configure, command not found)

after that, type make
the program will build, then do su
type your root password, hit enter
then type make install

If configure was supposed to be included then it wasn't included in the tar.gz file. I think I'll go the rpm route.

Gaim

I installed Gaim .74 on SuSE 9.0 from apt with great ease.

I tried the one that comes with Red Hat 9.0 and it does not support MSN. That is why I am trying to get a new version or anything that supports MSN.
