Try to updgrade to new fedore core2 and you will find all is fine otherwise you have to do update of RH
It is simple matter of installing latest software on little old OS .. ;)

hi guys
i have simple solution to install softwares like GAIM and aby other.
u just install a software "APT"
just give it the name of the software u wanna install ,it will search the net its database and automatically resolve all the is a commanline tool but u can also use its front end "SYNAPTIC" which is a great has a long list of packages which u have already installed and many optional packages listed which u can install through it including softwares of multimedia,networking and communication,internet,system,kernel and many more.
u can solve ur problem after installing APT as given below:

#apt-get  update
when u first time install  APT, this command is necessary becoz it updates the RPM database if any new packages r available.
#apt-get  install gaim
this will automatically install GAIM including its dependencies
TRY it! its a great software
