    using yahoo in Ubuntu 8.10

    I'm a newbie. I have install Ubuntu 8.10, and I Opened Pidgin Messenger Management(Applications --> Internet --> Pidgin), add my Yahoo account, the Buddy List appeared and I enabled my Yahoo account, but it still keep status "Connecting..." for a long time and even now, it can not access Yahoo and I can not chat through Yahoo, so I can not contact with my friends.
    Please help me to solve this problem.

    I had to do this

    http://www.pidgin.im/download/ubuntu/

    fist before I could update Pidgin to the newest version but that was right after Yahoo IM stopped working with Pidgin so things may have changed but if just running update doesn't work check out that link
