What kind of file did you download? The source code or an RPM (or something else)?

If you have a good connection, go to easyurpmi and setup the various main, contrib, plf and updates repos for your version of Mandriva. After that do
#urpmi pidgin
or Run the Mandriva Control Center (Configure Your Computer) and search for Pidgin in the sofware management section and select it for install.
