So I'm guessing there's no way I can install gaim? Just don't want anything that looks MSN ;-)

Really appreciate all the help... oh and my security settings are set to high.

regards

Ok maybe it happens down at High too, I forgot.
By default Mdk installs GTK 2.2.x, so unless you compiled from source and affected any other gtk apps, it should be fine to force the package install. Run gaim from a terminal to see any errors it might be throwing.

Force it >:-)
I know I did. Maybe it's a union thing between msn clone developers
If you use Kpackage to read the details of the KMess file you'll see there's actually no unsatisfied dependancies reported.

like i said, try using the --nodeps option to force the install. i'd be willing to be a fair amount that it's simply a typo. as I'm running 0.64 on gtk 2.2.2...

OR you can go back to installing from source, which is a doddle too really.

when you say force it... how exactly do you mean?

I have the option to continue and I do select yes but it then automatically says that the installations have failed :-(

Is there another way? Pretend I know as much about linux as you do about purple rhinos... you might need to spell the commands out for me ;-)

what's the run command through console...obviously going into the directory and typing the name of the file you want to run is too simple :-P what's the command?



thanks

first run

"rpm -ivh gaim.rpm"

and you'll get that 2.0.0 error. And then try...

"rpm -ivh gaim.rpm --nodeps"

and it'll install ok. and *I* think it will work just fine.

Thanks a lot... you've been really helpful. I've installed both of the successfully I think. So just gotta find them and try connecting. Cheers.

For what it's worth I think it'll work too
That's half the reason there's a force option
