1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Those instructions won't work; the libraries necessary are no longer available in Ubuntu's repository. Not to mention that the version of the protocol it supported was dropped a couple years ago. Pidgin or Kopete both support the current Yahoo Messenger protocol and are included by default or easily installed on Ubuntu.

Thanks for the note about libraries. One can usually find old libraries some place.

Yahoo! Messenger in Linux is old rubbish. Years ago I installed it in *buntu by getting the .rpm and converting it with "alien". It worked, but it is not good.

If you think it will have video capability you are wrong. Go for Skype or Google Chat.

Drop the idea of using it. Find something better. I have used Pidgin for years .
