Unhappy Gaim is Gone after update attempt!!!


I just downloaded gaim 0.70 rpm to update my current version... I was runing something like 0.59 and downloaded the .70 version for rh9.. rpm. I don't know if I did this right, but I went into the terminal and su and then typed rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force *.rpm (I don't know what that means, I just got that advise to update my KDE and thought maybe it was the same command)

It took gaim out of my (sorry for the windows reference) 'start menu'... now when I go to a terminal and type gaim, I get this error:

gaim: error while loading shared libraries: libgtkspell.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What did I do wrong and how can I fix it...HELP!
