    I can't figure out why after a reinstall my Jabber IM service isn't working. I am getting The Jabber config file /etc/jabber.xml does not exist. Either Jabber is not installed, or your module configuration is incorrect.

    Can someone please point me in the right direction?
    And there is no XML file.

    Thanks!

    [root@Main ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i jabber

    Nothing appears on rpm -qa | grep -i jabber
    I got the module from webmin site and added it via guy interface. Not to sound lame but did that not install it?

      My guess... Jabber is not installed.

      Perhaps a

      # yum install jabberd
      

      should do the trick?
