Wink Yahoo Messenger!

I am trying to install the newest version of Yahoo Messenger on my Suse Linux 8.0 OS.I keep getting the following dependency problems<ome/mark/ymessenger-0.99.19-1.i386.rpm;echo RESULT=$?
error: failed dependencies:
gdk-pixbuf >= 0.8.0 is needed by ymessenger-0.99.19-1 is needed by ymessenger-0.99.19-1 is needed by ymessenger-0.99.19-1
I tried to uninstall all vestiges of yahoo messenger after a install process,but did not know how to properly uninstall it.Did taking it out piece meal harm linux? What dependency problems can be overcome.?
