    Yahoo Messenger for Linux......


    Hi friends,
    I downloaded Y! Messenger for Linux from http://messenger.yahoo.com (linux link) and it is in rpm form. I installed the package with rpm -Uvh and it was saved in /opt/ymessenger
    and a link in /usr/bin
    when I opened ymessenger and all other executables, it started installing Yahoo in GUI mode, and after successfully installed, i got YaHoo messenger. But later when i open the same file, it again started installing, and then showed the mouse cursor as it is loading (busy). But after some time, it disappered. I restartrd the system, but the problem is same. It is not launched, just shows busy cursor for some time.

    i did that

    Ok, i did that when i installed Y! messenger.
    That opens a dialog for installation job, and next asks you for desktop icons, Gnome/KDE links and after doing that it starts for the first time. Works fine.
    But when i closed it and later i did $>>ymessenger, i got same installtion from beginning.
    and after some trial, it is giving segmentation fault" err.
    Now what?
    ------------------
    U r running Fedora Core. Let me know how it is and hows easy that to operate from GUI. I have placed that in my download link, buit that will take some days, 4 CDS to cover. So let me know, i m curious
