sounds like a redhat installer problem really. does it install from a console? "rpm -Uvh gaim.rpm"

Well i got to show me the failed dependencies and it was only one so i was able ot install it from the CL. Why is the RPM gui in Redhat 9 refusing to show the failed dependencies? Or is it always better to use the CL when installing?

I guess one gets spoiled by Gui interfaces and fails to realize the little things or other alternatives what do you think Acid?
