you may want to try this since you don't have all the disks, it will be much easier to install apps and have all the depends taken care of.
http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/ . once installed you can do a apt-get install gaim and it will take care of everything. or get the synaptic package so you can point and click the software you want. i've been using it for a few months and it works so much better than yast online update.

ok, now I have suse 8.2 - it comes with gaim 0.59.8 - what I want to know is how to upgrade it to 0.62 - I have installed tons of software for different distros so I don't need a how to, but the problem with this example is that there are so many dependencies and they keep getting worse. I'll get one (gkspell) and then a whole bunch more will come up.
I might try apt-get to see what it can do, but it does't always work either.
Tips appreciated.

well. no go on the apt4rpm (although I really like the idea of it):

Code:
 # rpm -ivh apt4rpm-0.64.4-1.noarch.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        apt-server is needed by apt4rpm-0.64.4-1
        perl-XML-LibXML is needed by apt4rpm-0.64.4-1

You may try to install these package:

apt-0.5.4cnc9-1cl
synaptic-0.26-rb1
apt-devel-0.5.4cnc9-1cl
or the newer one for SuSE

Search it here:

Have fun :-)

I just switch over form mandrake to Suse 8.2 yesterday and I did find rpms that would work to upgrade to Gaim .64

you need gaim-0.64-SuSE.ulb.2.i586.rpm and gtkspell-2.0.4-SuSE.ulb.1.i586.rpm. I found them at http://www.usr-local-bin.org/gaim.php

If you installed apt for SuSE do:

apt-get update
apt-get install gaim

I like Kopete more than Gaim.
IMHO, Kopete is better and easier.

Or at your prompt just type

yast2 -i "program name"

Comes in handy.
