Question Yahoo chat using Gaim?


Hi,

I have installed the latest version of Gaim in my RedHat-8.0. I just want to whether I can go to different yahoo chat rooms that is possible in yahoo messenger in windows. Basically I want to joing in a chat room and want to chat with many peeple.

When I tried chatting using gaim I got a message saying that 'chat protocol is not supported' or something similar to that.

Nowadays I boot my windows only to get into my yahoo chat room!.

Any help is appreciated..

sheldon.

Thnaks.

Could you send me the name of the software that supports this?

Just now I have searched freshmeat.net and what I can find is a text based yahoo messenger (Ari's yahoo client) . Looks like this doesn't support yahoo room chat. Let me know if I am wrong here. I have downloaded the ymessenger from yahoo website also. That also doesn't support group chat. Actually I was not able to see the fonts with the ymessenegr that I downloaded from yahoo web site!.

Sorry, so far I couldn't find anything by which I can replace yahoo messenger on windows. Yesterday I downloaded kyim, it works but I doesn't support different yahoo chat rooms.

I presume Gaim also doesn't support this.

Looking forward for some answer.
