GAIM & MSN. Need SSL library???


Hello all,

I am trying to be able to connect on MSN with GAIM, but I have some problems.

When I try to connect on MSN with GAIM, it says :

Quote:
...
SSL support is needed for MSN. Please install a supported SSL library. See http://gaim.sf.net/faq-ssl.php for more information.
I have tried to go on the supplied URL, but I would like to not have to compile it, b/c we can't uninstall with compilation.

Is there any way to be able to connect on MSN whithout having to compile the source using make.

Note:

printf "%s\n" `uname -r`

returns 2.6.19


-----

ThanX

Blue

enable firefox sources by editing /etc/ld.so.conf and add line /usr/lib/firefox in it or install seamonkey.

1) ThanX, GAIM works when I enabled Firefox sources in ldconfig.
But I have a question : Does It can slow my computer when we add more sources?


2)

Huh, How can I remove the software I compiled myself???


GNU Find does't works very well to uninstall CLEANLY the software.

or, more easily, install it as a package to begin with
