rats, it *was* there in a recent build

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-29 02:50:58 UTC
The build log for 4.0.3-1.fc9 says:
/builddir/build/BUILD/kdenetwork-4.0.3/kopete/protocols: Disabled Jabber 
because libidn-devel was not found
+ IDN: GNU Libidn Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) implemenation 
Used by the Kopete Jabber plugin.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-29 02:54:05 UTC
libidn-devel is BRed, but not found. :-(

Probably due to:
* Fri Mar  7 2008 Joe Orton <jorton@redhat...> 0.6.14-6
- drop libidn.a
- move shared library to /lib{,64} (#283651)

We'll have to patch the cmake file to find it there, unless we can get 
the -devel .so symlink moved back to /usr.

Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-29 03:02:57 UTC
Grrr, this is actually being searched for using pkgconfig, but the file is not 
where pkgconfig says it is. I'm going to file a bug against libidn about that, 
but for now I'll work around it.

Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-29 03:10:44 UTC
Filed bug 439549 against libidn.

Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-29 03:24:45 UTC
Ugh, my first patch attempt doesn't work. :-(

Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-29 03:35:00 UTC
Another patch committed, hopefully this one will work.

Comment 8 Gerwin Krist 2008-03-30 08:35:27 UTC
I can confirm that in the last rawhide update Jabber support is back!
