I tend to see a similar problem, but I can sometimes not see p[eople who are
on yahoo. If you look through your manual for apt-get, you can configure it
so that you get gaim from unstable, which is usually the newest version.

(I'd provide the actual code, but my laptop is battery less at the moment.)

Subject: [NBLUG/talk] Gaim weirdness with AOL

Has anyone noticed that Gaim doesn't always show when a buddy on AIM is 
online?  A few days ago, I noticed a friend with both AIM and Yahoo (both of

which I also use) was online with Yahoo, and initiated a conversation.  He 
told me that he was also online with AIM, yet my buddy list indicated that 
his AIM account was offline.

The other guy is running Windows XP, and is using the software provided by
and Yahoo for the respective IM accounts.  I don't know if this is a 
compatibility issue with Gaim or what.  Any ideas?

I'm using Gaim 1.3.1, which is the latest version available via 
Debian/testing.  I see on the Gaim website that the current version is
so maybe I should upgrade, bypassing the Debian repository?
