Gyache (Gyachi?) and Kopete yahoo logon issues


Anyone else finding they can't connect to Yahoo with Gyache any more? It's the stand out Yahoo client for Linux (none of the others have the same functionality) but when you log in now it just logs you straight back out.

Have Yahoo changed the logon protocol again any know?

Also, is Gyachi dead now? There seems to to be no activity on the mailing lists any more, sadly.

Apparently it is up to 1.2.2 now, which version do you have? From discussions on their forums, it seems that others are having the same issue. Have you tried using Pidgin? That seems to work fine.

Thanks, Xavier.

1.1.59 on [Mandriva] 2009.1 and 1.1.48 on 2008.1

I have found that I can log on by using this server on logon:

cn.scs.msg.yahoo.com

Don't know why that should allow it.

Pidgin does, indeed, allow me to log on, but the emoticons are really poor, Gyachi really does them very well and allows picture sharing which I like doing with one of my other photography friends sometimes.

Gyachi does have activity on its forum, I was looking at the wrong one originally.

That server is in China. No hurry by Yahoo! to update that server, perhaps. Just out of curiosity, where did you find that server to use?

Best,

Andrew

It was pn the Gyachi discussion forum which I eventually found when looking at the correct web site!

When you say that Pidgin's emoticons aren't up to par, have you tried downloading new ones?

I must confess, I didn't know you could. The Gyachi ones are almost exactly the same as the Yahoo ones. The Yahoo ones are easily the best of all the messengers. A friend and I are often in fits of laughter at the emoticons when we chat.

Simple things and all that...
