I have just installed Red Hat 9 yesterday after almost 2 years of hesitation. I went online to download XChat in RPM package form which is pretty friendly. The trouble came when i decided to replace the existing version of GAIM(0.59) as it seems to be pretty old and doesn't support MSN. Did the same thing downloaded a RPM package which i m very sure is for Red Hat 9 as it contains i386-RH9 in the file name. Double clicked the package and the package gets extracted but the prompt telling you the size of the program to be installed did not appeared. Instead the window suddenly vanished. My question is do i need to install something else? Please be patient with me, I am a newbie to Linux and don't know anything about UNIX coding. Thanks for the help!
