Yes I experienced this problem. I suggest you use GAIM with the yahoo plugin. It works like a charm.

Hmmm I've got the Debian version and it installed like a charm and it works fine. Funny thing. I've also got the windows version on the HP and it doesn't show text (go figure) I use the Debian one anyhow.

I went to mandrake 9.0 and yahoo works fine, however I just went to version 9.1 and now it don't work again. I did contact yahoo support and they are awhere of it and told me what to do but it didnt work. At least in redhat 8 it didtn. I still trying to find the print out of that they said to do. when i find it i will post it if anyone whats to read it. It is a font problem so what ever mandrake did with there new version messed it up. well its yahoo not linux.
