thats because i think due to older version of gaim

do this

rpm -qa|grep gaim

this will give u all the versions of gaim installed

uninstall then

rpm -e gaim..

then reinstall the new gaim rpm again

regards

for uninstalling the older version. i wrote...
.........." rpm -e gaim........"
then for installing the new version....
........."rpm -ivh gaim...."
after it got successfully installed...i'm just writing "gaim" on the prompt.
i'm getting the user login window for yahoo messenger but when i'm trying
to log in.......it's giving the error stated above on the command prompt.
