Thanks the fix worked for me as well,

on a side note: Cafrow, I thought that I had to upgrade to the new Gaim to get MSN support aswell. However, the old one has support for MSN, Yahoo!, etc. You just need to go the plugs section of the program and 'load' the modules for MSN and Yahoo! they are there already. Hope that helps. - Another Newbie.

Here is how I installed GAIM 0.67 on my RH 9.0:

1)
I downloaded the latest rpm package of GAIM @
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/g...6.rpm?download

2)
then I went to freshrpms for the "missing dep(s)" and downloaded
a) http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrp...4-fr3.i386.rpm
b) http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrp...4-fr3.i386.rpm

note: i downloaded all these files into my ~ directory (which is /home/username)

now that I have all files I will start installing all these rpms:

3)
rpm -Uvh gtkspell-devel-2.0.4-fr3.i386.rpm
should complete with no errors (100% complete)

4)
rpm -Uvh gtkspell-2.0.4-fr3.i386.rpm
should complete with no errors (100% complete)

5)
we've installed all missing dep(s) - now we're going for the GAIM rpm

rpm -Uvh gaim-0.67-1.i386.rpm
should complete with no errors (100% complete)

WE'RE DONE!

you can check and see if it has installed the newest version by doing:
$ gaim --version
Gaim 0.67

is what it should say

hope this helps!


note: it's a matter of taste if you do rpm -ivh filename OR rpm -Uvh filename (ivh installs the package, Uvh upgrades as well as installs) - so either way works

gaim 0.67 installation

hi ,
had some problems getting gaim 0.67 installed on redhat 9 and stumbled on this thread
i've gotten it to work finally !
the latest tarball available at http://gaim.sourceforge.net works just fine
just follow the instructions in the INSTALL file.
note - if u wish to install gaim-0.67 in a directory other than /usr/local/
use configure --prefix=path.
peace

Thanks to KoS !,

Installing GAIM 0.67 on RH9 was very easy.

download
gaim-0.67-1.i386.rpm and
gtkspell-2.0.2-1.i386.rpm

I uninstalled existing RH 9 supplied gaim version 0.58. As It gave some dependency issues.

# rpm -e gaim
# rpm -ivh gtkspell-2.0.2-1.i386.rpm
# rpm -ivh gaim-0.67-1.i386.rpm

GAIM is up & running.
As KoS mentioned it dint work 2.0.4 and aspell

Strange, where would anybody have found the 2.4 version, checking the website, http://gtkspell.sourceforge.net/, 2.0.2 is still the most recent version.

happened to me before with a yahoo account

wonder what happens if you let GAIM alone sit there for a while. Meaning without logging into any MSN/yahoo/ICQ/AIM account or whatsoever. If it doesn't shut down by itself, you can pretty much assume it's one of those accounts that cause that. If GAIM does shut down without being logged in actually, then I wouldn't know much besides trying to reinstall GAIM.

hope this helps
