I tried the rpm as well, after the .tar, and it didn't seem to do anything. Of course I did try it in Gnome so I didn't really see any error messages.

Maybe I'll try it again inside a terminal. Remind me the command? I generally run rpms GUI & .tars terminal.

I'll give that a shot. I really hope it works because otherwise I'm w/o IM and we can't have that.

Is the 7.0 rpm an update or a complete version?

Yeah, I did have GAIM working fine until this morning when I tried to upgrade to 7.0. The installation didn't seem to work so I thought I would clean-out the older version. Well, I removed all the gaim files (whereis gaim) and tried again. That still didn't work.

I'm really hoping I can either get 7.0 to work or at least get my old version to work again...

This is why you don't play around as root!

Ok, I uninstalled & tried using the rpm. This is what I get::

[root@localhost downloads]# rpm -Uvh gaim-0.70-1rh8.i386.rpm
warning: gaim-0.70-1rh8.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 883c1c14
error: Failed dependencies:
libgtkspell.so.0 is needed by gaim-0.70-1rh8

Help?

Can you tell me where I need to put this after I've downloaded it?

Thanks a million for the help by the way.

Just installed the new GAIM (.70) with MDK 9l1. Works great! Of course after the 15th we get to do this all over again.

Yeah, sweet fun for all of us. Why don't they just get it into their heads that we (multiple client users) aren't going to give up. There are too many of us, too many programs & not enough reasons to use each proprietary peice of software. Really lame.

What do you guys think of 0.70? I'm loving it so far. It is much cleaner, I think, and the whole Yahoo! thing is nice to have again.
