Yeah, I've been trying to install gaim 0.70 but there are wierd problems with glib 2.0 and gtk+2.0 I have them both installed but gaim will not install it tells me i dont have them, or i need to edit the PKG_CONFIG_PATH or something and I have no idea what that is. Ultimatly I would rather have Gaim working. I posted on another thread about this. Right here.

Any help would be much appreciated.

On a side note, Yahoo have changed their messaging protocols to block 3rd party clients. Patches will probably be forthcoming though.
