Well, they do say the FreeBSD 4.5 is the supported platform. How old is
Anyway, did you get it installed and running? I fought with it for
awhile until I finally did pkg_add -f (after creating /opt directory)
and it did install. ymessenger launched but failed to login. Anytime I
try to save or apply from the Preferences menu I get:
/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /opt/ymessenger/bin/ymessenger.bin: Undefined symbol "Xu4L"
I've compared the old .ymessenger/preferences file against the new one
and played with the proxy settings but to no avail. I'm stuck using the
web-based client for awhile I guess.
