    Instal YM!


    You are (i think) my last hope! I'm desperate. For 4 hours i'm searching on the internet a way to install Yahoo messenger, but i couldn't find. I'm opening Terminal Program and i'm loged as user. I write su and now i'm loged as root. but when i write the path for example rpm -i /home/alexe/desktop/rh8.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm (the file is placed on desktop) the message is "no such file or directory". I've tried to replace "home" with "root" but the result was the same. What should i do? please help me... because i really have to talk with someone. it's urgent! I really need your help! Thak you!!

    In CLI, cd to the directory where the file is located. Do an ls command to make sure it's there. Then try to install it from there. Do you get the same error?

    # cd /home/USERNAME/Desktop "assumen you put it there"
    # ls
