You need to use the latest version of Gaim, 0.74, and in the account setup, set it to connect to scs.msg.yahoo.com. http://gaim.sf.net

I downloaded gaim .75 and now for some reason i cant install it. When i do run the install it says installed has failed and this comes up

Installation failed:
file /usr/lib/libgaim-remote.so.0.0.0 from install of gaim-0.75-0mdk9.2 conflicts with file from package libgaim-remote0-0.68-1mdk


What does this mean, what am i doing wrong, please somebody help me.
