Hello all. I have a small question here. I just installed RedHat 9.0. I was going to install Yahoo! Messenger on my box, but their latest release is 8.0. I thought I might as well give this a go and see what happens. When I tried to install the program, I got the following error:
libcrypto.so.2 is needed by ymessenger-0.99.19-1
But I think RH 9 used an updated version of the OSSL toolkit that comes with libcrypto.so.4. It is just this one file that is causing the problems. Now, I tried to install with the "--nodeps" option, but all that gave me when I tried to run the binary was a message saying much the same thing . . . that a needed file was missing.
I have heard that you can sometimes make a symlink to another library file and that it can work sometimes. So I went into /lib and made a link from libcrypto.so.4 to libcrypto.so.2, but that didn't work either.
Does anyone have any suggestions that might work, or will I just have to wait until RedHat provides a binary for RH 9?
I don´t have installation problems with yahoo messenger at red hat 9. But once it is installed an I open it, the configure screen comes up asking me if I want to create a link at desktop and at menu too. Ok, I can live with that, but if I try to access any option at the yahoo messenger´s menu it get closed. An other thing I noticed is that the YM installation is made for Gnome, but I switch to Gnome and I get the same issue.
I use Gaim at my other PC, but I own several "cyber coffee´s" (I´m not sure if you call this places like this in english) and the idea is to get rid of windows and migrate all the PC´s to Linux.
People here is familiar with windows environment, so the only problem I see is the yahoo messenger, all the other stuff is almost identical to window´s (openoffice, amsn, internet browsers, etc.)
Does any one have any ideas?? or maybe is because the rpm is for RH 8? Do I have to wait until yahoo releases the RH 9 rpm??
Your message worked for me as well. I apparently don't have the default font set installed. But the messenger tool works pretty well. It doesn't off all of the Yahoo Fights, Chess, etc. So I still prefer GAIM. Thanks! -PTB
Agreed! Gaim is the best! It is nice to be able to chat across messenger platforms all at once. However, if the linux yahoo messenger supported the same features as the win-blows version I would consider switching just for the in-chat gamez. -PTB
