icq - the instant messenger - not sure if you have it - in liux it's called Licq. I also have yahoo, aim and msn.

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.

you can remove gaim by looking in red hat's package manager - should be kde-system-kpackage - you can see if gaim is in there.

You can look at my guide, I put instructions on there for installing gaim. You can also message me if you like, I am online a lot and I will help you if I am around. I use icq, aim, msn, and yahoo.

Just in case anyone is having this problem...I did...

I found a gtkspell rpm for Red Hat 9 here:

gtkspell

I d/l'ed it, then I did what was suggested earlier:

-su to root
-rpm -i gtkspell-2.0.4-1.9.0.i386.rpm
-rpm -e gaim
-rpm -i gaim-0.64-1.i386.rpm

Everything went smoothly. My new Gaim icon is now under Internet/More Internet Applications. It automatically converted my buddy list when I fired it up.

txtracer,

You made a mistake when you installed. You do not type rpm -i. That does not install properly. You want to type rpm -ivh.
