Chat client for yahoo chat??


hi all,

is there a yahoo chat client for linux (slack) gyach lockes up, then closes a say broken pipe. So any help would be great. The Java one on yahoo's site sucks on linux and I have no windows box. A yes I googled and searched LQ. Thank You

-Joey

gaim supports yahoo. You can also download the ymessenger that yahoo offers for *nix variants.

I have no suggestions about gaim but I can suggest getting (I think) Ychat for Windows because it was built to run through Wine. I have it working and it works good through Wine.

Yahoo had a chat client for Linux long ago, they had never updated that rpm since then. If any onewould like to open an petition on http://www.petitiononline.com please post it on the forums later, I'd like to support.

Yahoo should know many ppl had move to linux now..

Use Zinc or Curphoo, both work fine in yahoo chat
(though with new install of slack, having trouble with color not being called.. )

But thats a ncurses problem.. not the clients

My gaim connects to yahoo pretty well. You have to change the server address of Yahoo to this --> scs.msg.yahoo.com

It seems Yahoo changed their address!!!

Hi Ultimaguy
Your info is correct.Sometime back using scs.msg.yahoo.com was the trick.
But _NOW_ its all complicated ..doent work for *CHAT* (not IM)
Are you able to go to chatrooms using Gaim now?

btw Gaim-0.75 does this server setting for you,automatically.
adios

If you have java support in your web browser you can use the built in java chat that yahoo provides.
