    GAIM and SSL, Help.

    I switched to Zenwalk (minislack) today, FC4 was having some trouble with my hardware. But I need to install a supported SSL library to get my msn account to work properly.

    I looked here for answers (also tried the search function)

    No luck.

    "Gaim needs to be compiled with SSL support to work with MSN, and for SSL connections on Jabber (where the server supports it)" <

    Then the website says that I have to do this:

    "Firefox also includes the necessary libraries, so if you have a binary package of Gaim that was built with SSL support you may be able to add /usr/lib/firefox to /etc/ and run ldconfig as root."

    But I don't know how to add /usr/lib/firefox to /etc/ and run ldconfig.

    Any help is appreciated.
    btw. GAIM version 1.4.0 and FireFox version 1.0.6 and using XFCE.
