I cant use my IM using linux

Sometimes the Linux OS has a fit and wont log into any of the messengers because of an internal error, Most likely is that yahoo messenger has updated and is no longer compatible with the Linux OS. Keep trying or use a different messenger, it may just be a compatibility issue with linux

My yahoo messenger is not opening but it running in the process

At first you should find the source of problem, yahoo messenger? OS? or maybe Server!
But I think it comes from your yahoo messenger, please remove and then re-install your yahoo messenger, if problem stay, check the other version of yahoo messenger.
By the way above, I think your problem will solve.
Other scenario:
Maybe you installed a software that make a conflict with your yahoo messenger and let it not to open, check that software! Remove the softwares that you installed these days.
Maybe your OS damaged, you know that if you run OS for too long times, it will dameged and you need to re-install it and fix the problems.So, if none of two ways above can't solve your problem, re-install your OS, but before that read the following note:
You can use some Optimize softwares for fix and make your OS Symbian products.they could find the problem and fix them.So if this way couldn't help you either I suggest you to re-install the OS.
NOTE: Check your firewall, if you have firewall on your computer disable it and check runing the yahoo messenger maybe your firewall bothers your yahoo messenger!
Good luck
