When I try to run gaim I get the following error. I am running DSL off of a pendrive. I am not sure how to fix this problem, any help would be appreciated.
(gaim:1495): Gdk-WARNING **: Error converting from UTF-8 to STRING: Could not open converter from 'UTF-8' to 'ISO-8859-1'
(gaim:1495): Gdk-WARNING **: Error converting from UTF-8 to STRING: Conversion from character set 'UTF-8' to 'ISO-8859-1' is not supported
(gaim:1495): Pango-WARNING **: No builtin or dynamically loaded modules
were found. Pango will not work correctly. This probably means
there was an error in the creation of:
You may be able to recreate this file by running pango-querymodules.

You need to run the Update_to_Gtk2 on the mydsl section of the menu.

FWIW, I've got gaim running using DSL 2.2 on an ancient 486DX/75. I did run the Gtk2 updater first though. But it's quite happily acting as an MSN messenger client.
