Hi thanks retired soldier for you help. .66 sounds promising. However I have a problem in trying to install. After downloading, I cd into the gaim directory and do ./configure. It scrolls down seemingly fine until I get this last message:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
*** GLib 2.0 is required to build Gaim; please make sure you have the GLib
*** development headers installed. The latest version of GLib is
*** always available at http://www.gtk.org/.
So I downloaded Glib 2.0 and successfully configured and make was successful too (although not make install but hey). But I got the same error message again when I tried to ./configure gaim again. Is it to do with paths? I really am out of my depth despite having read up a bit on paths.
