I visited yahoo site again, downloaded new messenger for RedHat9 and installed as said on site, but still same problem. I cannot connect and it gives same error message. Help me!!!!

Dunno... But GAIM isn't letting me connect to yahoo today either...
message I get is --> unable to read

Yahoo won't connect until you update your software. Yahoo just upgraded there software so that 3rd parties can't connect. I installed Gaim 0.69 and it fixed the problem.

go here Download
and then download gaim-0.69.tar.gz extract it and then use their install
its pretty basic and easy


./configure
make
su
make install

this installs right over the older version
thats what i did and it works fine

look at their install file if you need help
