I'm posting this to the pidgin support list, you obviously replied to me
direct in error.

Then you need to follow the instructions here:

and once you have the .repo file installed then do a "yum update
pidgin" and that should fix it.

Yahoo doesn't work because the protocol has been changed. You're also
running a very old Pidgin version. Not to mention a very old Fedora
version too.
