Hey all those guys having this prob I had this problem too but managed to solve it. After i installed "rh9.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm" it ran only once. Every time afterwards i received the message "Segmentation Fault".

I am a KDE user on RedHatLinux9. Also i prefer bash on GUI and always use Konsole to start ymessenger. This is what i did to handle the prob. It worked with me. Try it & it might work with you. :)

1-> uninstall the ymessenger here is the command

    #rpm -e ymessenger

    Incase this command doesn't works for you or you are having
    problem uninstalling it, just delete the "ymessenger" and
    "ymessenger.local" files in /usr/bin and move to step2
    here is the command to do that

    #cd /usr/bin
    #rm ymessenger
    #rm ymessenger.local

2-> Delete the directory "ymessenger" in /opt
    use GUI to do that or Konsole. Here is the command

    #cd /opt
    #rm -r ymessenger

    keep pressing y to acknowledge the delete process

3-> Delete the hidden directory ".ymessenger" located at /root
    use GUI. Simply go to /root and from view check the "show hidden
    files" option. select the directory and del it.

4-> Ok we are done. now install ymessenger again. Move to the
    directory containing the .rpm. Here is the command to install on  
    Konsole

    #rpm -ihv rh9.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm

    if this fails to work try -Uhv instead of -ihv in above command

    #rpm -Uhv rh9.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm

5-> After the installation procedure, just type "ymessenger" and there
    you go. type "ymessenger" any where as the shortcut for it's
    binary file is added in /usr/bin. Just type "ymessenger" whereever
    you are and with a little luck you'll be enjoying chatting with
    you friends. ENJOY !! :))
