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.

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


./configure
make

make install

this installs right over the older version
