redhat 9 and ymessenger


does anyone know why ymessenger doesn't work on redhat 9? i mean the website says it was tested on 6.x but 9 is a long way from 6.x
i used ymessenger perfectly fine with redhat 7.2 and 7.3 the error message i am currently getting is:

/opt/ymessenger/bin/ymessenger.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.2: cannot open shared file: No such file or directory

does anyone know what that means and how to fix it??

libcrypto comes with openssl, do you have that installed? Might not be in the correct path if you do have it installed as well.

Also according to the yahoo site, they haven't created a rpm based on redhat 9 yet, only up to 8. I could only suggest using something like GAIM which fully supports the yahoo protocol and Messenger.

Shouldn't presume anything as this is mentioned dozens of times a week it seems. GAIM supports AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ and many others....

Its included, open up your options and add the plugin. Sometimes its under the options or account menus depending on what version you have.

Check out http://gaim.sourceforge.net for more details and great documentation on their site.
