please help me explain what this means


I ran into some difficulty running the gaim for msn so i went to their website's faqs and came across this, the links are : http://gaim.sourceforge.net/faq.php#q61 and it links to this page: http://gaim.sourceforge.net/gaim-ssl.txt


Red Hat Linux (8.0 or 9)
========================

Use the gaim provided packages : http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...p?group_id=235

NOTE: If you're using a Mozilla builds from here :
http://people.ecsc.co.uk/~matt/downl...illa/1.4/RPMS/
Then you WILL need to add /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4 to /etc/ld.so.conf & run ldconfig as
root. Replace 1.4 with whichever version you have installed.


Can you guys explain to me what this means and what i need to do? I'm very new into linux so i don't really understand what it's trying to say.... Thanks

btw for the following line extracted from the above,

add /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4 to /etc/ld.so.conf & run ldconfig as
root. Replace 1.4 with whichever version you have installed.

how do you add?

You need to use the konsole.
You can edit the file /etc/ld.so.conf with the "vi" command. Find on the internet how to use vi.
Then add a new line in ld.so.conf, which contains "/usr/lib/mozilla-1.4".

But anyway, as it has already been said in this forum, and as you're under redhat, you should use the apt-get tool to install gaim from the redhat packages database.
In fact, the one installed with the ISO-CD has some problems with MSN support, but the one you install with apt-get works quite fine.

Like stated before, run ldconfig so you'd simply type as root:

ldconfig

Also, try not to start anymore threads on this gaim issue, we should be keeping these in the same ongoing thread to keep the discussion all in one place to not cause confusion.

Regards.
