Re: pidgin problem after installing the most recent f10 updates

Have the same problem on F9 machine. Actually you can't install the newer version (2.5.5) from pidgin.im. There's only repo file for FC5,6 and 7. For newer Fedora versions we have to wait for our mountaineers bring it soon. Alternatively you could use Kopete while Pidgin is out of work. It supports most of the same protocols Pidgin does.

Hi Hiisi,

after downloading the pidgin-2.5.5 source from sourceforge.net and after installing a lot of devel packages:


I was able to build with "./configure --disable-avahi" (weird: the avahi-devel pkg was already installed).

Compiling and installing was successful, and after I had re-enabled my account, pidgin-2.5.5 now runs successfully.

Trying to re-enable my account fails too (getting the same error msg).

Any solution without installing pdgin from pidgin.im?
