After performing the comand you suggested, I logged out then logged back in as a "normal" user. I then opened up my terminal and changed to the opt/ymessenger directory and ran 'ymessenger'..................W-a-l-a !!!!!!!!!!! The program works like a champ now!!!!!!!!!! Everything set up just fine!!!!!!!!! Many many many many thanks to everyone for all the generous help. But KevinJ I have to ask you, what did the ' -R 777 ' command do? Whatever it did, it made it work and I thank you for it.
Ahhhhhhh................Thank you for the lesson KevinJ !!!!!
Now.........How 'bout helping me with my 'Boot Loader' issue? See my other post please!!!!!!!! Thank you once again. You've been a tremendous help!!!!!!
I was having a similar issue with ymessenger and I attempted everything in this thread so far to no avail...
My issue is this: When I installed the rpm i did so as a su from a terminal in my account (probably my mistake right there).
When Other accounts log on they see an icon for ymessenger in their menu bar, but when they click on it nothing at all happens.
When I attempt to run messenger via termail window I get the error message " Segmentation fault".
Now, ymessenger works like a charm on my own account... but even when I log in as root I get the same segemtation fault response to my attempts to run the app.
One thing i did do is remove ymessenger and re install the app from the root usr log in.. Ironically the ymessenger app will still run when I log on to my usr account but it still fails to run in other accounts including root. (same segmentation fault message)
Any suggestions? I have attempted the recursive permissions chage to no avail... but then im not being denied permission.
On a side note.... has any one had issues with Ymessenger having issues with file transfers? When some one sends me a file and accept it Ymessenger shuts down... no warning, no lagg just as soon as i accept the transfer, bam, its gone!
thanks for the patience and info in advance..
Here is some actual out put from terminal :
[stepha@x1-6-00-04-76-00-2a-9e stepha]$ ymessenger
[stepha@x1-6-00-04-76-00-2a-9e stepha]$ /usr/bin/ymessenger
reguardless of what usr im logged in as (except my own as mentioned), or which path I take to launch Ymessenger ... I get the same error.
I'm new here, so don't hit me so hard . I just installed Fedora and I don't know where to find an yahoo messenger application for Fedora. I see that rpmfind.net doesn't search as usually google, for example, does, but the complete name of a rpm package... Well, even with "rh9.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm" i give the "no results"... result...
