    Have you installed it and it doesnt work or can't you install it?
    Either way try something like pidgin http://www.pidgin.im/ and see if that works

    Is there even an official GNU/Linux client? You should be using the package manager (I think it is yum) and do a search for "instant messenger".

    On yahoo web site they only say ( XP (9.0 Beta), Vista, Mac, Web, Mobile ), So no Linux.

    About that pidgin, which should I use? ( Source / Fedora Core / CentOS / RHEL ) ?

    Have a look over at http://www.aspireoneuser.com, they have info on installing stuff in Linpus etc.

    I found it too much of a pain to get a nice desktop so just installed Ubuntu :)

    For goodness sake CK. Read this, this and this.

    I'm very disappointed that you blatantly didn't read that link someone kindly routed out for you above.

    Who would buy an Aspire One just for the worst instant messaging program known to man? What a lamo.

    nope, 512Mb on board which can't be disabled, and one empty slot.

    While the chipset supports 2Gb, you can't get 1.5Gb memory cards :)

    indeed, your right, 2.5Gb is more than 2Gb ;)

    The most the One can have installed is 1.5Gb, the 512Mb on board, and a 1Gb card in the slot.


    It's worth noting though, even a full Ubuntu install with firefox, pidgin and err, the music software running takes less than 500Mb of RAM, so with Linpus you'll be pretty pushed to fill up 1.5Gb :)

    Why did you bother with the one? You should of gone for its bigger brothers as there easly repairable ( you need to fix them by removing vista) and there upgradeable.
