Which version of kopete? I remember my version of kopete broke with MSN due to MSN constantly changing things. OTOH, I never have that problem with Gaim.

It looks like you need to download latest release ( with the MSN fixes), recompile and reinstall.

you can always download aMSN from sourceforge.net . It's equally good and works just fine.

Can't deny the fact that it looks like sh*t but yes, it is equally good to Kopete, yet not as good as gaim

PS: IMHO

Before going to all that trouble try the Suse updates program in Yast. Suse may very well have rolled the latest MSN fixes into their updates, I know other distros such as Mandriva do this.

You're sure you can't get it through Yast? Maybe you should google for setting up repositories for Yast if you don't have them already. It really is the easiest and simplest way.

Otherwise get the RPMs from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/
