Well, feed its dependecy by installing libgtkspell.so.0 just like the error states. And before you ask, try google.com to search for that file or rpmfind.net cause I don't have a link to download it cause I'm too lazy to go search myself.

Then i tried to install gaim 0.61, and this is what i got:

You need to uninstall the old one first.

GAIM .60 install errors

Hello,

I've been having the same problem here guys. It keeps telling me that it needs libgtkspell.so.0 I keep getting that same damn error when I try to update GAIM. I blew away my install yesterday and started over from scratch thinking I f----d up something but it's not me. I've contacted the developers about it directly. They have yet to get back to me about it. However, I'm still using .59.9 so I'll just wait until Rob Flynn fixes it. If anyone knows how to fix this without spending hours and hours doing it, please let me know. Thanks!

well if you keep getting that error then you have not provided the dependency, simple as that... it's not going to be a "bug" in gaim at all. no chance.

Okay, Acid. Thank you. However, I don't know why this is happening now. I did a fresh install of Red Hat 8.0 and when I tried to install the newer GAIM, I got that dependency error.

Can you tell me what I need to do to fix it so I can update the software? Thank.s

1. Download an rpm with libgtkspell.so.0 in it. You can find one by going to www.rpmfind.net and entering "libgtkspell.so.0" in the search box. One that _might_ work with your system (I don't have Red Hat so I can't test this) is available at ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/Mandrake...-3mdk.i586.rpm

2. Install the rpm you downloaded.

3. Uninstall any previous versions of gaim. (rpm -e gaim).

4. Install the new gaim rpm.

As for why this is happening now, it isn't anything wrong/broken, software dependencies are normal. Think of it like you were installing a program under windoze and it required you to install QuickTime first. There's nothing "broken" about the machine (other than the fact that it's running windoze) it just needs QuickTime for the other program to work. It's the same with your machine, nothing is broken, it just needs libgtkspell for the new version of gaim to work.

Sorry, that didn't work either. It's telling me there are other missing files.

It's saying Unlocatable package

libxrandr.so.2 libgtkspell0


and so on. I'm not going to type everything in here as I cannot cut and paste it into this window.

And beyond this, what's been happening is that I got the libgtkspell file. I was able to install GAIM .61, however, I cannot execute the program once it has been installed. I cannot find it in the menus nor can I run it from the run command.

So, I once again removed the newer package, and went back to gaim .59

Any more ideas guys?

I had the same problems and I got it working.

I removed the old version and compiled from the source. If you still get dependency issues, you can get the files that others are suggesting and install them or you can use apt-get/synaptic which I used and got rid of lots of my dependency issues.

See my guide for the instructions - link is in my sig below

Thanks, but I'm not a programmer. I don't know anything about programming really. I'm a network guy. I don't know how to compile and all of that stuff. Personally, I think I'm just going to wait for Rob Flynn to get back to me before I proceed any further.

you are doing two things here:

1 - underestimating yourself

2 - overestimating the difficulty of this operation.

If you want more details, icq me if you want, this is easier than you think.

Well, thanks for the vote of confidence. I don't know what you mean about icq?
