gaim SSL support


I searched and read the message that i found but none of them helped.

I'm trying to give SSL support to gaim. I have mozilla 1.7.5 and firefox 1.0.6
I installed the package nss-3.9.2.tar.gz to a ddirectory but it didnt work. I changed the directory to where i installed mozilla. again didnt work.

I decided to add the path where firefox is installed to /etc/ld.so.conf but it didnt work either.

what should I do to sign in to MSN ?

When I "./configure" gaim I get like this at the end.


gaim 1.4.0

Build Protocol Plugins........ : yes
Protocols to link statically.. :
Protocols to build dynamically : gg irc jabber msn napster novell oscar yahoo zephyr

UI Library.................... : GTK 2.x
SSL Library/Libraries......... : None

Build with Plugin support..... : yes
Build with Perl support....... : yes
Build with Tcl support........ : yes
Build with Tk support......... : yes
Build with Audio support...... : no

Use kerberos 4 with zephyr.... : no

Gaim will be installed in /usr/local/bin.

configure complete, now type 'make'

you installed nss "to a directory" ? what does that mean?? you need to install the whole package properly. personally i'd suggest you just installed the rpm's in each case, i'm sure gaim are still making rh9 compatible rpms.

you can't just copy it to somewhere, it needs a full correct installation just like any other package.

erm yeah.. again you "copied" the package? you need to install nss properly. what else are you expecting people to say? Like I mentioed above, if you can find a suitable rpm for nss (and afaik nspr will follow) for redhat 9.0 then use that, otherwise install from source.

please pay attention? that red line says you do not ahve it installed... you have still not proved in any way that you have nss or any other required package installed. the closest you've got is saying you've copied the package to the directory, which is NOT installing...
