    Default A little IM trouble

    Hello!

    Since last update of the KDE packages Kopete won't connect to Yahoo! It works with Windows Live. I have version 0.70.4.
    When I run it in terminal I get the following message:
    Code:
    Calling appendChild() on a null node does nothing.
    Calling appendChild() on a null node does nothing.
    Calling appendChild() on a null node does nothing.
    kopete(6049)/libkopete Kopete::PluginManager::loadPluginInternal: Unable to find a plugin named ' "" '!
    And when I try to connect:
    Code:
    kopete(6049): The kwalletd service has been disabled
    kopete(6049): The kwalletd service has been disabled
    kopete(6049): The kwalletd service has been disabled

    And here connecting hangs. Tried connecting with pidgin and connecting hangs. Tried it on my other computer running Ubuntu pidgin hangs there too. On a third computer running Windows, yahoo messenger connects. I can also connect on websites such as Yahoo! Messenger for the Web and Meebo - Connecting AIM, MSN, Yahoo, Facebook, MySpace messengers

    What could be the problem?

    Looks like the password is stored in kwallet and it is unable to retrieve that. Make sure that you can open kwallet manager.

    If you don't want to use kwallet, configure kopete with the "Remember password" check box switched off for the account.

    Kopete stores passwords in kwallet. May it was enabled earlier.

    I got my kopete connected after mapping scs.msg.yahoo.com to 66.163.181.166 in /etc/hosts

    seems to be related to yahoo DNS problem in some way.

    I found the reason for why this is happening.

    Yahoo! Messenger Blog We’re retiring versions 6.0 to 7.5

    It looks like Yahoo! is updating protocols, so until the guys developing kopete fix this there will be no more yahoo (

    Hmmm... Lack of proper standards for chatting protocol. Everybody is trying to build proprietary stuff.
