Thanks so much! That was some speedy service. I looked on rpm find myself, but couldn't find it. Is there some type of search on that site?

No problem, and what do you mean if there is some type of search on that site? www.rpmfind.net the search thing is the first thing you see... Well anyways I hope you enjoy your gaim.

[EDIT] And by the way, try reading this http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5&pagenumber=1
I suggest some downloads that could help you make your life easier in the future with rpms and dependecy problems.

Trouble with Gaim 0.71

Ok, well, first of all- I'm running Red Hat Linux 8. I decided to update Gaim, because, unfortunately, the older version's Yahoo protocol doesn't like to load. It logs into Yahoo, logs right back out, and says "Error: cannot read".

Well, I went all the way through the tar gz until ./configure, where it said it required GLib 2.0.0 or higher...So I went and fetched the most recent, and configured it, where it said it needed pkg-manager 0.15.0 or higher... So went and configured it, completed it, went back and configured GLib successfully, and tried to configure Gaim. This was it's response:

pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.2.1, but GLIB(2.0.6) was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best to remove the old version of GLib. (I tried this, but it didn't grant me access to the usr/share/doc folder... I even tried it as root user, and still no luck.) You may also be able to fix the error by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment or by editing /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you run ldconfig if that is required on your system. If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH to point to the correct configuration files.

Could you help decipher how to fix this up, please? Help is very much appreciated.

you must have had glib from the start. you just needed devel stuff of glib.
try running ldconfig and hope that pkgconfig picks up your latest glib. if it does not happen then you might have to do a "make uninstall" of the latest glib that you installed and then install devel packages of glib.
