Hi Hiisi,after downloading the pidgin-2.5.5 source from sourceforge.net andafterinstalling a lot of devel packages: meanwhile-devel gtkspell-devel gstreamer-devel NetworkManager-devel tcl-devel tk-devel 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. Regards Joachim Backes
There's no pidgin rpm for Fedora on sourceforge.net.
Right, but a source package, and why not install from scratch if this solves my problem?
And don't you dare
to say you installed it from source?
No. I have no problem with installation software by source, and I think this is a recommended way if a binary package is not available!
I don't want to be scare, but
you're in a real world of trouble from now. It's not a recommended way of installing software, you know.
No, I don't know, and I cannot agree with you. Why not install open source software by source (I must repeat myself).
What for myself - it's only my girlfriend who needs Pidgin for ICQ messaging. I'll be wait for updates while using Kopete.-- Hiisi.
