GAIM 0.75 installation problems


I'm on Suse 8.2
I've got some strange problems.

I'm trying to install from the source RPM.
gaim-0.75-0.src.rpm

If I run rpm -Uvh gaim-0.75-0.src.rpm, it LOOKS like it installs fine. It displays the package name, and then goes to a prompt. It does it so fast though, it's obvious it didn't install. When that's done, all I've got is GAIM .59 (the one I had installed previously, and is included in the Suse 8.2 CDs)

If I double-click the RPM and open it with YaST2, it takes me a list of RPMs, with many highlighted in red, so I assume that's stuff I'm missing. If I clieck "Accept" YaST2 crashes.

My next step is to compile the source, but I was assuming I could easily update the RPM package. I guess that's not the case.

Anyone had any similar problems?

Never mind.

This package worked.
