    no errors?

    If you start the app from a terminal window when it crashes you often see why, unlike starting it from the GUI.

    have you tried an older version? sometimes older versions are a little more stable. i've got version 1.1.4 on my SuSE install. to use a specific version try adding:
    Code:
    >net-im/gaim-1.5.0
    to /etc/portage/package.mask
    i'm not too sure of this, cause the gentoo website is pretty bad to navigate if you're looking for something specific.

    EDIT: i finally found it hidden at the bottom of this page.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    I think I've had a problem with gaim closing before (older version, different distro, might be completely unrelated), try disabling sound for gaim and see if that helps.
