    i use it and works fine on me.what are the error messages you have?
    look at /var/log/messages after trying to open the yahoo messanger.

    waht is not working, does it not run at all, does it not connect? does it connect, but not allow you to send and recieve messages? you need to describe what is wrong, we can guess at common causes, but thats the same as a faq.

    did you look in your settings for kopete? the yahoo section, see if there is anything incriminating, also consider installing gaim, personly i think it is a more stable effective messaging client.
