    libqt4-32bit
    libqt4-x11-32bit

    should do it. They are on your 64-bit media (DVD or online OSS repo).

    I don't do IM, so somebody else might have to answer that. But IIRC pidgin handles many IM protocols.

    BTW, don't hesitate to start a new thread if you have a new query. Your question might not be seen if you just follow on. No need to try to save threads, they are not endangered.

    "best" or not i do not know (i seldom use any,but) Pidgin does LOTs of
    protocols, including msn..

    you can also search for and it install via yast > software management

    WAIT, before you do that i guess i should say that MAYBE it has
    already been installed, use Menu > Internet > Chat > Pidgin..

    if not there now, it will be after you use yast to install..
