Hi
If it’s so important to have 2.4.3, you can download the source and
build your own.

In other words, OpenSuse11 will not change the version of any package.

Why?

Because this would break production systems in the near future.

If it cames with apache_2.21 (just guessing) it will use apache_2.21 till the end. Only fixes for this version will be put to update apache (apache_2.21-01, 2.21-02, etc…).

And honestly, this is wonderfull!

cheers

What!!! I was under the impression that they did eventually put newer versions of apps in the repos.

And if what is above is true, suse 11 has 2.4.1 and the new one is 2.4.3. So that is a … release so then they would update it???

In OpenSuse12 I guess. :stuck_out_tongue:

Or, I think you can use the Build Service. Probably in there some body soon will put a rpm for the new pidgin’s release.

I would like to do it, but I’m stucked in MacOS… :frowning:

This thing of not change versions on a OpenSuse Release is great!!! If they change the version of the apps some simple update would be able to crash some production applications that uses features of some especific version of some software. Capice? :smiley:

Cheers

I bet libpurple and/or pidgin will be updated soon. If this does not happen the broken ICQ support will be a no go for using opensuse anymore.

I would call this problem critical. So fast update seems reasonable.

OpenSUSE 11.0 comes with a stable set of repositories. These are frozen with a certain revision of each piece of openSUSE software and will never change. The only exception to this are security updates, which are released using the opensuse-updater program in your system tray. If the package was updated but did not contain a security update, it will not appear in YaST or the opensuse-updater program by default.

If you want to update any piece of software to a newer version and it’s not being updated in the OSS, NON-OSS, or UPDATES repository, you’ll need to add new repositories for yourself.

See:

@andrew

Does this mean the broken ICQ support will not be fixed by default ?

I think the thread was started, because since yesterday ICQ support with libpurple is totally broken in that old version.

Enable the gnome community repo - pidgin 2.4.3 is in there, and works extremely well :slight_smile:

pidgin 2.4.3 format rpm

SourceForge.net: Files

Index of /repositories/GNOME:/Community/openSUSE_11.0/i586

thanks for this, I added gnome repo and upgraded pidgin; I have a few friends I only know on ICQ so it was nice to see them online again.

hi all…
I have some problem… your version of pidgin is too old :frowning: i try to search for modern one in opensuse software search… and did not found any :frowning:
i’m trying to run icq… but cannot :frowning:
maybe oS has another application for instant messaging irc and icq? what you recommend to use with gnome de?

now i have compille last pidgin from tar.gz sources… i don’t want to tell how many dependences i have not…
but at least i compile it with nothing --disabled
huh :sarcastic:
so i start pidgin and nothing happens
i try from console

~> pidgin
libnm_glib_nm_state_cb: dbus returned an error.
  (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown) The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files
pidgin: symbol lookup error: pidgin: undefined symbol: purple_smileys_get_all

i disable NM… i enable it and try one more… this not happened to me :frowning: have one more problem so i try to configure with --disable-nm option

~> pidgin
libnm_glib_nm_state_cb: dbus returned an error.
  (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown) The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files
pidgin: symbol lookup error: pidgin: undefined symbol: purple_smileys_get_all

did i need to kill older /usr/bin/pidgin and /usr/lib/pidgin/.?
or it wil be updated when i run sudo make install?

Hi
Why not download a 2.5.1 rpm from http://software.opensuse.org/search

Hi
As a side note, if you look at the openSUSE 11 2.4 version source
compile options for my system (x86) are;


../configure --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu
--target=i586-suse-linux --program-prefix= --prefix=/usr
--exec-prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin
--sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share --includedir=/usr/include
--libdir=/usr/lib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var
--sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man
--infodir=/usr/share/info --disable-static --enable-plugins
--enable-cyrus-sasl --enable-dbus=yes --enable-mono=yes
--enable-gstreamer=yes --enable-gnome-keyring=yes --enable-nm=yes
--enable-dbus=yes --enable-devhelp --with-perl-lib=/usr
--with-nspr-includes=/usr/include/nspr4
--with-nss-includes=/usr/include/nss3 --with-tclconfig=/usr/lib
--with-tkconfig=/usr/lib

I would also uninstall the previous version before installing from
source.

when i compile it,there was no version above 2.4.3(i already have it) in any of software.opensuse.org repo’s i search there of course.
Did you think that if there was newer version earlier this thread appears here?
I could not use bulding service because did not understand how it can beused :frowning: … But i try to understand that some later. I have too many questions for now :slight_smile:
