look.....

first u need to add the list of repository to your repolist.
and why do you download the file separately and then install it. better allow yum to download the file from the repositories and install it for you. yum will also download the dependencies for you. thatīs the advantage of yum.

just post the output of

Code:
$ yum repolist
Have a nice time

Welcome to LQ.

1) The pidgin repo, you have
http://rpm.pidgin.im/centos/5Server/i386/
holds pidgin + a couple of dependencies only.

2) With no Redhat payed support, "not registered with RHN"
you will have to enable the CentOS repos : post # 2 and 3 here
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ghlight=centos

3) Instructions, vlc, post # 5 and # 6 here
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ghlight=centos
.....
.....
The command 'yum repolist' is best done as ordinary user,
hence the $ sign shown in post # 2 , @lemon09 .

@ tanishq4u : Please click the link
http://rpm.pidgin.im/centos/5Server/i386/

and see the very few packages,
not very useful for anything but pidgin.
