Kopete install problems


I'm trying to install Kopete from rpm but get the error message that

"Conflicts were detected

libcrypto.so.4
libssl.so.4
qt = 3.1

are required by kopete-0.7.1-1jec"

Can someone explain (in simple terms, please, for a newbie to Linux) how to resolve this error/conflict?

I haven't been in rpmseek.com
for a long time, but you just have to look for the files you need, download the rpms and install them first, after that try to install kopete again

Thanks for the suggestions, cadj and linksocc. In fact I managed to figure out the installation of kopete not long after my first post so it's running fine and my teenage daughter (who had been pestering me to install MSN Messenger under Windo$e) is delighted with it. She thinks Linux is wonderful

I'll maybe have a look at gaim too, but kopete looks pretty slick now that it's running.

I should have posted back to say I'd got things working - sorry.

linux does look cool with all the great WMs there are. I guest you are using KDE

linksocc - using KDE, yes. It was the default WM with my MDK 9.1, not a problem with a reasonably powerful machine. I tried a couple of the other WMs (Blackbox, Ice) that also ship with MDK but they were a bit too minimalist for me.
