Kopete and msn login freeze

I know I know,

This particular question has been half flogged to death on this site and others. The problems that other users have been having logging into msn since the protocol change a while back.

The advice has been to update ones version of kopete to 10.1 minimum.

Good, I have done that by updating package kdenetwork3 instantmessaging to version: 3.4.1-3

This gives me kopete version 0.10.2

Trying to log on produces a freeze of the programme and then a crash, the message generated is along the lines: of it being a signal 11 crash.

No problem, try gaim instead, I don't care. Ended up lost in dependency hell there having tried to use this site

Back to kopete.

It seems that most users have no problems after upgrade.... why me?!?


suse 9.3
KDE 3.4.0 level b
kopete 0.10.2
kdenetwork3: 3.4.1-3

Ready to be flailed!

Sorted it,

Went for gaim in the end....

I have to connect to some sites via a proxy, MSN is now one of those, probably a change on my LAN that I wasn't told about.

Went to:

accounts => modify => show more options => proxy options

and put in the relevant data for an HTTP proxy

Horrendously bamboozled by this one though
