Question gaim msn error


Hi
I have download gaim ( latest version, tar based). When I try to login to my hotmail account via gaim, it gives the folowing error;
"Plaease install the proper ssl"
when I give the command "rpm -qa | grep ssl", it gives the following result;
openssl-perl-0.9.7a-2
openssl-0.9.7a-2
docbook-style-dsssl-1.76-8
openssl096b-0.9.6b-3
openssl096-0.9.6-15
openssl-devel-0.9.7a-2
mod_ssl-2.0.40-21
it seems to me that prper ssl is installed. Can anyone tell me that how can I solve the problem. I install gaim using command, ./configure; make and make install.
Thanks.

What are the last few lines that you get from
gaim's configure?

Specifically the SSL library bit...

Code:
gaim 1.0.0

Build Protocol Plugins........ : yes
Protocols to link statically.. :
Protocols to build dynamically : gg irc jabber msn napster novell oscar yahoo zephyr

UI Library.................... : GTK 2.x
SSL Library/Libraries......... : Mozilla NSS

Build with Plugin support..... : yes
Build with Perl support....... : yes
Build with Tcl support........ : yes
Build with Tk support......... : yes
Build with Audio support...... : yes

Use kerberos 4 with zephyr.... : no

Use XScreenSaver Extension.... : yes

Gaim will be installed in /usr/local/bin.
Warning: You have an old copy of gaim at /usr/local/bin/gaim.

configure complete, now type 'make'


Cheers,
Tink
