ymessenger is available as rpm from yahoo website, so simply download that one and double click to execute and if everything is fine it will then installed. If you find dependency problem then try a older version.

Btw.  in terminal you can do by  
Code: [Select]
rpm -ivh <exact_name_rpm_file>

I don't know what's wrong...I wrote:

rpm -ivh rh8.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm

It didn't work. Not even one version...I've tried them all... :?

Gaurav


Ok. The file name is: rh9.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm

So I wrote:

rpm -ivh rh9.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm

That's ok, isn't it?

And it says:

/etc/security/selinux/file_contexts: No such file or directory
error: open of rh9.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm failed: No such file or directory

This is the procedure that should install messenger, right?!

So...I'm a bit...well...clumsy with this stuff. And I'm not sure what to do. If yuo can help me, I would be sooo grateful... :?

Ok

First of all , u have to go to that directory , where u downloaded rpm package of yahoo messenger..

It seems that u gave rpm command from the wrong directory..or may be the downloaded yahoo rpm may be crrupt:(i.e 0 byte size)

Suppose u have downloaded yahoo rpm in /usr directory
Then go to /usr directory by command
#cd /usr
now to see wheather yahoo rpm is there type
#ls
If its there then give that rpm command:

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


If still the pb come, then see the size of yahoo rpm by command
#du -h rh9.ymessenger-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm

If its 0 then may be its not downloaded properly , then u have to download it again

It will work

yahoo messanger installation error

Dear Friend, the above error is not due to corrupt installer but a
security feature in linux called "selinux"

Actually what is clear from your output is that selinux is enabled in your system and it is not allowing the installer to be accessed.

Solution: disable selinux
How: vi /etc/sysconfig/selinux
Change the "SELINUX=enforcing" in the script to "SELINUX=disabled"
save the script and reboot the system

now run rpm command ...
you will succeed this time

Ok guys, First and foremost. Gyach with voice sucks. It is very difficult to configure because of that cryptic python sh*t. Now,  On to my question. I wanna know if anyone has actually RAN the windows version of Ymessenger in linux. See, I have installed it through wine, But it will not run. I want to voice chat, but it seems as tho I am ice skating uphill in this quest. Any help would be great.
