Theoutdoorsman, when u were in /usr/bin, u typed /ymessenger, which is wrong. instead, you should type ./ymessenger. u left out a "period" before the forward slash.

Hey "simplico",
I did as you suggested and this is what I got:

[alan@dhcp-250-1 alan]$ cd /home
[alan@dhcp-250-1 home]$ cd /usr
[alan@dhcp-250-1 usr]$ cd /bin
[alan@dhcp-250-1 bin]$ ./ymessenger
bash: ./ymessenger: No such file or directory
[alan@dhcp-250-1 bin]$

Thanks for trying though......................ALAN

Hey KevinJ,

I did as you suggested and this is what I got as a return:

[root@dhcp-250-1 root]# chmod -R 777 /opt/ymessenger
[root@dhcp-250-1 root]#
I'm going to go out on a limb and say I just removed the read-only attribute for this file...........correct?

Thanks for helping......................ALAN

Hey KevinJ,

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.

Regards,
ALAN

Alan,

"chmod -R 777" recursively changed permissions on all files and folders in /opt/ymessenger and subdirectories to allow read, write, and execute for pretty much every user.

Hello again.. from the n00b

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
Segmentation fault
[stepha@x1-6-00-04-76-00-2a-9e stepha]$ /usr/bin/ymessenger
Segmentation fault

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.

Yes,

You can. I just installed it on Mandrake Linux 9.2 just fine.

I am having the permissions issue as the normal "user". I must install and change permissions while I am in root.

Take care

I thought people used Linux to escape from MS?
I can recommend Kopete or GAIM or any Jabber client instead. They all support multiple IM systems.

As for AMSN, look around on rpmfind.net for rpms or the AMSN website.

Hello!

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...

So, what to do next?
