I'm using Slackware 10.1 on my Dell Otiplex GX150, and I'm using the Fluxbox window manager. Gaim will not connect to the aim and Yahoo protocols, for some strange reason. Though, if I first connect to those protocols with Kopete, or first ping those servers, gaim will connect with no problem. So far, what I'm doing is using a script that will ping all the servers I use, then open gaim, but I'd like a better solution.
Does anyone have any ideas?
