Regarding my last entry: I've successfully upgraded: [ALPM] upgraded libxml2 (2.11.5-1 -> 2.12.3-1) And it works without any problem - so it seems the libxml issue was fixed :)

Hi Guys, only some info for the reference:

Today I've lost several hours debugging why the sipe-plugin stopped working for me. The pidgin was starting properly, but it was unable to connect to the SfB server, saying something like: Web Ticket Request to <server> failed I was trying to build latest version (with libxml2 patch applied) and also older plugin versions.

Finally I was able to isolate/track the problem to this recent pacman update: [ALPM] upgraded libxml2 (2.11.5-1 -> 2.12.0-1)

So I am currently stick at 2.11, as this is the last version which is currently working (at least for me/on my setup).

The following patch is required to build with recent libxml2 versions:

I just tried to install this package and got the following error messages:

error: failed to build 'pidgin-sipe-git-1.25.0.r3.g9043ff51-1': error: packages failed to build: pidgin-sipe-git-1.25.0.r3.g9043ff51-1

If this is the right package to use Pidgin to connect to Skype, could someone please look into this?

Thanks in advance.

I believe this can be switched to use gmime3 instead of gmime (version 2), due to this bit in

PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GMIME, [gmime-3.0 >= 3.0.0],
    [PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GMIME, [gmime-2.6 >= 2.6.0],

I'd request switching over to gmime3 since it's in the actual repos (unlike gmime) and I eventually want to request gmime's deletion
