Is this problem known and maybe fixed in FC6 (one factor more for me to upgrade...)
Thanks, happy new year,
liboscar.so is another GAIM module in /usr/lib64/gaim/liboscar.so
As why it isn't found needs the investigation from somebody with
an x86_64 machine. In the source it's linked as -loscar, which would
fail at run-time when it's located in /usr/lib64/gaim/ which is
outside run-time linker's search path.
FC6 doesn't appear to be affected.
FC6 uses a different version of the plugin. The easy solution is to install
FC6's gaim and gaim-rhythmbox on your FC5 system.
I'll take a look at the problem this weekend.
Fixed in the next version. Before it's available in the repository, you can run
gaim with LD_LIBRARY_PATH set to /usr/lib64/gaim
