Well, guys, I don't know how to fix this problem. As I mentioned I got the libgtkspell installed but now I'm getting all kinds of other errors. For the record, you're saying that I have to uninstall my current version by typing:
rpm -e gaim
The package uninstalls. . .
Is there anything else I need to do to remove the entire package? Do I have to remove all traces by doing a locate on GAIM and removing all trace elements of the program?
Next, I have the rpm's on my desktop for the newer versions. I double click on the newest version. It appears to install, however, I cannot launch the program. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME? I'm very frustrated here. Thank you.
