wrong password / everyone offline with gaim, kopette / yahoo msg in slackware 10

Heeeelp pls!!!
I am running slackware 10 and I can't use gaim or kopette because it says wrong password.
I tried to use yahoo messenger (rpm2tgz from the red hat 9 version) but everyone apears offline (I can see their status, or the fact that they log on or off but all the smileys near their names expert the one at yahoo helper ar gray).

Try upgrading gaim or kopette, IMs usually change their protocol to avoid non-official clients to connect so you need to upgrade the version to support the new one.

It is true that I used the koppete version that is found originally in slackware 10 but I downloaded gaim 1.1.4 yesterday and it gave me the same problem.
I am having this problem at home and at my office (slackware 10 on 2 different computers) so I presume it is some kind of incompatibility.
In both places I am connecting to the Internet trough server that runs NAT but it works fine in windows so I don't think that this is a problem.
