Kopete and AIM

I installed the 0.7.1 Kopete RPM tonight. It runs fine, but when I try to connect I get this message in the terminal:

QServerSocket: failed to bind or listen to the socket
QServerSocket: failed to bind or listen to the socket
kopete: relocation error: kopete: undefined symbol: _ZN13KNotifyClient5eventEiRK7QStringS2_

This basically results in me not connecting to the AIM server.

Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks in advance ~

Enable the AIM ports in your firewall?
Try Guarddog if you want a nice gui firewall editor.
