YIM on pidgin messenger no longer work
I'm using Mandriva 2008.1 and have been for a while now. Recently, like a few days ago, YIM on pidgin messenger stopped working. I've never had this problem before. I have an AIM account on pidgin and it connects and signs on immediately so I know it can't be an issue with pidgin itself. But, I just can't figure out why YIM doesn't work anymore. I've tried multiple id's for YIM under pidgin and all I get is "connecting" and it never goes beyond that. I found out I was originally using an older version of pidgin so I upgraded using package manager, but still no change. I then tried uninstalling and reinstalling pidgin with no success. Anyone have any ideas what the issue might be?
