on a side note: Cafrow, I thought that I had to upgrade to the new Gaim to get MSN support aswell. However, the old one has support for MSN, Yahoo!, etc. You just need to go the plugs section of the program and 'load' the modules for MSN and Yahoo! they are there already. Hope that helps. - Another Newbie.
had some problems getting gaim 0.67 installed on redhat 9 and stumbled on this thread
i've gotten it to work finally !
the latest tarball available at http://gaim.sourceforge.net works just fine
just follow the instructions in the INSTALL file.
note - if u wish to install gaim-0.67 in a directory other than /usr/local/
use configure --prefix=path.
i have a question, after i did installed GAIM 0.68, and i can open it
but after i open it, fwe second later (i guess it's about 6 or 7 second), gaim shut down by itself, did i do something wrong??? i am using RH9.0
wonder what happens if you let GAIM alone sit there for a while. Meaning without logging into any MSN/yahoo/ICQ/AIM account or whatsoever. If it doesn't shut down by itself, you can pretty much assume it's one of those accounts that cause that. If GAIM does shut down without being logged in actually, then I wouldn't know much besides trying to reinstall GAIM.
