    What you need to do is convert the rpm to a Slackware package using rpm2tgz and then install the resulting tgz package with pkgtools or installpkg. Swaret only deals with Slackware tgz packages and not rpm. I personally would not bother with the old Yahoo package, Pidgin and Kopete are more up to date.

    Unfortunately I can't help with that one. I don't send texts via im, so don't have a clue how its done. Hopefully someone else will come along and help.
