    Updating RPMs and Gaim


    I've been trying to update Gaim to v0.79. It has the dependancy on gtkspell and libgtkspell.so.0.
    So, I try to install gtkspell v2.06. That depends on libaspell.so.15.
    Next I try to meet that dependency by installing aspell v0.50.3
    Cant do that, it gets rid of some needed liberaries. So.. I don't know what to do with it now. Help?

    I would recommend using an automated installer such as emerge, yum or apt-get. If you dont want to do that, you could install from source yourself.... whitch distro are you running?

    You don't need to change distro
    Download and install apt with synaptic. Works perfectly.

    definetly, although personaly, i would recommend yum as it was made for redhat as opposed to debian (i havent found a problem ever, but its just a precaution that i like to take) w/e its your decison, you can try both and see

    Well, after giving it more thought, I dont think I will change my distorbution. But thanks for suggesting a RedHat updater.. looking at synaptic scared me cause it aslo had a bunch of dependancies I don't meet. I just grabbed yum... that seems like a pleasant way to go for now. thanks!
