I have been using PIDGIN with yahoo IM for many months and loved it.
But suddenly today it refused to connect.
I suspected a yahoo problem, so I rebooted my machine under WinXP and ran Yahoo's IM program, and everything was fine.
So I rebooted under Fedora 10, and tried Pidgen again.
No error message, it just constantly says "connecting" along with the connecting ICON in the upper right, rather than the normal one.
Anybody else have this problem?
I'm running Fedora 10, Pidgin 2.5.4-1.fc10
