Re: Where is gtk-config?
> What wrong? Where is gtk-config?
gtk-config was part of gtk+-1.x. gtk+-2.x uses pkg-
config instead. if your app wants gtk-config, it wants
gtk+-1.x and its devel packages.

i did this, and it worked:
1 - get the tarball (listed at the bottom of the download page)
2 - unpack that someplace. it will create a dir named opt (because it expects to be installed to /opt). i don't want an /opt, so i moved opt/ymessenger to /usr/local, creating /usr/local/ymessenger.
3 - edit .../ymessenger/bin/ymessenger to replace /opt with /usr/local. you'll note that this front-end script messes with LD_LIBRARY_PATH...
4 - make a symlink from the /usr/lib/libcrypto.so to .../ymessenger/lib/libcrypto.so.2
5 - add a symlink from .../ymessenger/bin/ymessenger to /usr/local/bin.
6 - important: move away your old $HOME/.ymessenger directory! i couldn't connect until i did...
7 - run ymessenger. since you've just blown away your preferences directory, you'll see a first-time-user wizard. the gnome/kde icon installation didn't work for me, but i don't use them anyway -- just click finish at that point.
8 - don't forget the "show power user settings" in the first preferences tab, which will add an "advanced" tab, under which you can tell ymessneger to use mozilla instead of netscape.
hope this helps. :-)
doubtless the reason you couldn't get it to work before was that you didn't run ldconfig afterwards so that ld knew about the new link.
