i think you may use meebo.com if you just want chatting.

I think your problem could be as a result of yahoo changing the way you login to their messenger servers. you could fix this by upgrading to the latest version of pidgin. this can be done in different ways depending on your distro. however, you can use this quick fix. after opening pidgin, goto Accounts >> Manage Accounts. Select your account and click on "Modify". on the advanced tab, change the page server to "cn.scs.msg.yahoo.com" (without quotes").
hope this was useful. cheers

i have not encountered the problem with the chat rooms since i do not use that feature. however, updating might be what you need. if you use ubuntu, RHEL/Centos , Fedora core or any of their derivatives, you can get information on how to install an updated version from http://www.pidgin.im/download/ubuntu/ . alternatively, you can download the source code here http://www.pidgin.im/download/source/ and compile it yourself. i however advice you to try installing the .deb or .rpm file and not go down the compilation road as things could get ugly if not done correctly.
again, i hope this was useful.
