gaim should be update to 0.75 as soon as possible
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:35 EST
Description of problem:
Gaim 0.74 that is the latest in FC updates doesn't work with Yahoo
anymore. It should be updated to 0.75 as soon as possible, since it
has lost some functionality.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to sign on with Yahoo.
A dialog with "Incorrect Password" opens.
It should connect to the service.
Gaim 0.75 is available from http://gaim.sourceforge.net/downloads.php
Seems that Yahoo problems are not completely solved with 0.75. At least
that is what the subject line of #gaim on irc.freenode.net is claiming:
"If you're having problems with Yahoo!, wait for 0.76".
The severity of this bug should be increased to "security". See the
security errata for Red Hat 9.
Version 0.75 is available at:
This version should have been released as a security fix on 26 january
I suggest to increase the severity to "security".
The attached patch should be applied to gaim for fedora core and
pushed to updates, pronto.
the patch is the same one in rhl9, applies and builds cleanly.
