Hello,

I am a Linux newbie. I just installed Suse on my laptop and now want to install Yahoo Instant Messenger. Which Yahoo IM version do I have to download, the one for Red Hat or Debian?

Thanks,

Do a search for GAIM. I believe GAIM has that plugins along with other such as MSN, ICQ, Jabber .etc ..

I don't like Kopete's IM features. So I just installed Yahoo Messenger for Suse.

Steps for installing Yahoo IM for Suse:
1) Download Yahoo RPM file for Redhat 9
2) Right click file and install with Yast.

Good luck and enjoy,

Make sure that you deselect option to allow YHO IM to autolaunch. This option is only presented during installation.

Enjoy,

Yes I do! I don't like Kopete at all. I'd rather have the real Yahoo IM.
