qq.com is a social networking site and a messaging application that's
very big in China.  Which means it's basically the biggest in the
world...  It has it's own  chat / IM protocol, nothing to do with AOL.

As the OP is installing pidgin 2.6.5 it should work -- there were problem=
s
with qq.com making arbitrary protocol changes that affected 2.6.4.  Proba=
bly
best to try asking on a Chinese language mailing list or forum (if you sp=
eak
the language) as that's where you're most likely to find other users.  Th=
is
one, perhaps: http://www.freebsdchina.org/forum/

	Cheers,
