    I agree with the others. There may be some PPC/Universal Binary type issues going on.

    Just go ahead and use iChat, it works seamlessly. Also there are other programs you can try. The five minutes of learning iChat is better spent than an hour trying to figure out what is wrong.

    It is the best. Adium is to iChat as iChat is to AIM.

    Adium, as good an application as it is, can be considered over-kill if all you need is access to the AIM network, plus you lose a degree of OS integration (e.g. indication of when an email in Mail came from someone who is online). I generally advise using iChat unless you actually need the multi-chat protocol features of Adium.

    Adium has way more OS integration than you might think, maybe more than iChat since it has a few more features.
