    • NOTE: THIS DOESN'T FULLY WORK YET**

I tried this, found a couple of issues. first, packages for yum are separated by spaces, not commas, so that line should be "yum install make, gcc, perl-XML-Parser, glib2-devel.i386". Also, you left out a couple of steps. after the wget:

bunzip2 pidgin-2.3.1.tar.bz2
tar -xvf pidgin-2.3.1.tar
cd pidgin-2.3.1

Yep -- I'm still getting this working out. Thing is, my son has the computer more often than I do, and I'd not had much time to get it working right. Thanks for the feedback. I'll get back someday and fill out all the dependencies. mistapotta 17:09, 10 February 2008 (EST)

Thanks for putting this up, it did at least get me started. I was able to install succesfully. The other packages I needed to install were glibc-headers, gtk2-devel, and libxml2-devel. (I also installed gcc-g++, not sure if it was needed.) The yum install ran short of memory at one point, I closed browse and re-ran it and it was fine. Any objection to me creating a Pidgin page, and putting the instructions there? DanTilkin 08:36, 15 February 2008 (EST)

Sure, not a problem. Let me know when it's up and I'll link from here to it. mistapotta 14:23, 15 February 2008 (EST)

Okay, I created Pidgin, and copied this and other info there. DanTilkin 12:26, 17 February 2008 (EST)
