This isn't an answer to your solution, but may I ask why you installed it from source? Fedora Core 2 uses the RedHat Package Management system (rpm) and Gaim's website provides an rpm for the Fedora Core 2 system. I can tell you from personal experience that installing rpms made for your OS are much simpler.

i noticed that the google problem seem to be an isolated incident, however i still can't view man pages. If this has happened to anyone and they know how to fix it i'd appreciate the help. thanks
