My company has switched away from using Sametime - I can no longer validate builds function correctly. Disowning the package to allow someone else to pick up the torch.

William has transferred packaging to me -- I have rewritten the build sections (and updated to 2.10.10), please report any issues with this new method that tries to be as lean as possible (no tcl/perl/tk/python/etc.). The finished library has reduced ~4k on my system from the previous version - be sure and back up the 2.10.9 package or /usr/lib/purple-2/ before upgrading just in case.

I've tested this against my corporate Sametime server (I think it's version 8.5.2?) and everything seems to work as expected. Tested with OTR as well, no issues popped up for me...

These should no longer be needed:

# The farstream patch changes
autoreconf -vi

# Use Python 2
sed -i 's/env python$/&2/' */plugins/*.py \

I was also messing with the PKGBUILD to try and get it to be a minimal compile (linked libs on the final .so) even if you have everything installed that gets auto-detected. If anyone wants to help test it out a little:

GLIB_CFLAGS="$(pkg-config --cflags 'glib-2.0 >= 2.16.0 gobject-2.0 gmodule-2.0 gthread-2.0')" \
GLIB_LIBS="$(pkg-config --libs 'glib-2.0 >= 2.16.0 gobject-2.0 gmodule-2.0 gthread-2.0')" \
LIBXML_CFLAGS="$(pkg-config --cflags 'libxml-2.0 >= 2.6.0')" \
LIBXML_LIBS="$(pkg-config --libs 'libxml-2.0 >= 2.6.0')" \
MEANWHILE_CFLAGS="$(pkg-config --cflags 'meanwhile >= 1.0.0 meanwhile < 2.0.0')" \
MEANWHILE_LIBS="$(pkg-config --libs 'meanwhile >= 1.0.0 meanwhile < 2.0.0')" \
./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--with-python=/usr/bin/python2 \
--with-dynamic-prpls=sametime \
--enable-silent-rules \
--enable-shared \
--disable-gtkui \
--disable-consoleui \
--disable-screensaver \
--disable-sm \
--disable-startup-notification \
--disable-gtkspell \
--disable-gestures \
--disable-schemas-install \
--disable-gstreamer \
--disable-gstreamer-interfaces \
--disable-farstream \
--disable-vv \
--disable-idn \
--disable-avahi \
--disable-fortify \
--disable-dbus \
--disable-nls \
--disable-nm \
--disable-nss \
--disable-perl \
--disable-gnutls \
--disable-tcl \
--disable-tk \
--disable-pixmaps-install \
--disable-doxygen \
--disable-dot \

By nulling out PKG_CONFIG all the random things without a --disable flag (like GADU and PANGO) are ignored, then manually pull in the needed configs for GLIB_*, LIBXML_* and MEANWHILE_* just the way ./configure does. Then adding all the other --disable flags skips all the checks/warnings/errors, etc. - just build in the libpurple/protocols/sametime/ subdir.

Warning: not well tested.

Needs depends for tk and tlc (or disables).

christoph.gysin commented on 2014-05-12 07:39

This should depend on tk or disable tk support.

Well, if pidgin is already going to include those files, I guess I don't need to. updated PKGBUILD.

pacman -Ql pidgin | grep meanwhile

yetr2 commented on 2014-03-18 00:15

what package currently owns those files?

punkrockguy318 commented on 2014-03-17 12:30

I'm getting the following error (although package installation can be forced) error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)

I need it, so I'm taking it.
Updated to 2.10.9. Rebuilt the script to just compile and grab the module as opposed to replacing pidgin from Extra. seems to work on my setup, would like feedback if other people are having issues.

Side note, the sametime setup I'm forced to partake in, the IDs, unless I add them to my buddy list in some fashion, don't resolve to names. Just displays a long number instead. Anyone know anything about this? I know they've configured sametime to use Windows AD for managing user credentials.
