Unhappy Talk doesn't work on fedora


I read a lot on this theme and i really want to make it work. I know i should have a talk server running, and i don't:

~> rpm -aq | grep talk
talk-0.17-26

I tried to install it like this:

~> rpm -i talk-server-0.17-26.x86_64.rpm
warning: talk-server-0.17-26.x86_64.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
libc.so.6()(64bit) is needed by talk-server-0.17-26.x86_64
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit) is needed by talk-server-0.17-26.x86_64

Probably you think i'm stupid or something, but the question is: what does that warning mean and what dependencies should i install to make talk work? And one more question: if i succeed in installing this talk server, will talk work? Thank you.

The warning is saying that you dont have the C libraries installed (libc or glibc) and yes provided talk and talkd are installed correctly, talk should work properly.

I resolved that problem, but talk still doesn't work:

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -aq | grep talk
talk-0.17-26
talk-server-0.17-26

And i get the same error message:
[ Error on read from talk daemon: Connection refused. Press any key... ]

Thank you.
