I've that same error, it's with the ICQ protocol!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment 2 Joachim Backes 2009-03-10 09:03:17 EDT
After getting a hint from the fedora community, I could install pidgin and libpurple from  the f10 updates-testing repo:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update pdgin libpurple

This pidgin version pidgin-2.5.5-1.fc10.i386 seems to run correctly.

thank you for that tip!!!!!!
Comment 4 Peter Brommer 2009-03-12 12:38:57 EDT
Should be marked a duplicate of Bug 489087. Or as resolved, as the updated package has hit the mirrors, so "yum update" should help...
