Problem using GAIM


Hey,
I am running SUSE 9.0 with KDE 3.1 and Fluxbox as my desktop environements.
I use Gaim 0.67 for my messenger programs but it only works for AOL and not for
yahoo, msn or jabber. If I try to add the account it would tell me unable to read for the yahoo server and get discontected after, and for the msn server
it would tell me that the protocol is not supported.
Please any help would be appreciated since I need to use yahoo messenger al the time.
PS- I don't use kopete cause my laptop would free whenever I write a long sentence on the chat window.

Junior

My friend added me to her list and I was using GAIM and it would crash msn.
I would try to authorize her and add her and it would disconnect
