@ kallan
to use Gaim with an yahoo account do this:
start Gaim>>Accounts>>Add Account>>then select Protocol "Yahoo" and enter you username, password and/or other options like "Auto-Login", "Remember password", using proxy server, ...

That's all!
Good luck!

It maybe working now, but it is likely to stop working soon .

You could try Kopete or visit freshmeat.net to search for other YIM client for Linux.

kallan

are you using GAIM 0.80 or 0.81? The older version doesn't support yahoo any more. You have to enter in the "Screen Name" field just your yahoo username without "@yahoo.com". Just [example] kallan and your password. "Alias" field can remain empty.
