qq.com is a social networking site and a messaging application that's
very big in China. Which means it's basically the biggest in the
world... It has it's own chat / IM protocol, nothing to do with AOL.
As the OP is installing pidgin 2.6.5 it should work -- there were problems
with qq.com making arbitrary protocol changes that affected 2.6.4. Probably
best to try asking on a Chinese language mailing list or forum (if you speak
the language) as that's where you're most likely to find other users. This
one, perhaps: http://www.freebsdchina.org/forum/
