Internal RFE bug #145013 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-03-07 02:35:21 EST
RHEL3 does not have spell checking in gaim because we did not ship the gtkspell
library back then.  RHEL4+ contains gtkspell so it works there.  You are
encouraged to use RHEL4 for desktop usage, because of its improved desktop
capabilities and features over RHEL3.

Closing this bug, because we cannot add new packages to older distributions.
