Yahoo not workin


hey guys....
i am totally new to this Linux.....

i have Suse 9.1 installed on my machine....

and i am currently using kopete as the messenger service
but my problem is that yahoo does not connect with this.
while msn works fine....

then i tried installin gaim but came out with the same problem.

i asked a frnd of mine.(an expert)

so made me understand that yahoo changes it's protocols from time to time...
so that is the reason that yahoo can't connect

he told me to upgrade my gaim....but when i tried to upgrade....
i did not found any rpm for suse....
can anybody gimme the link for the download......
of the latest version of gaim...for suse 9.1??

i would be very grateful to u....
thanks!

If it's still broken after you reinstall I would try changing your password.
It may be that you are having trouble with certain abnormal characters in your password.
