no problems here with yahoo on linux.. direct connection should work if your on a regular ISP connection. unless they do require proxy server for connection, which most don't use anymore.

i use direct settings.. don't have to supply a proxy or port.. whatever yahoo uses most likely as default.

I think that the default setting is not working. Or I have to wait a very long time to connect ( patient that haven't got yet ).

For voice and WebCam support for yahoo messenger you can try gyach :
1. Download http://www.politicalcrossfire.com/te...nstall.tar.bz2 , and save it to your home directory (important!).

2. Run these commands in the terminal, in sequential order:
Code:

tar -xjf gyach-install.tar.bz2
cd gyach
sudo ./install
