Comment 1 Dan Ziemba 2009-11-05 02:18:19 UTC
I have tested version 1.62 of the facebook chat plugin, and I can confirm that it does solve the issue.  I tested the 64 bit libfacebookchat.so file from upstream's binary deb.  Maybe Fedora's should be updated to 1.62 for F12?

Comment 2 Ismael Olea 2009-11-05 02:26:04 UTC
On going.

Comment 3 Russell Harrison 2009-11-06 02:30:48 UTC
It should also be updated for F11.  Possibly related to upstream issue 639?

Comment 4 James Cassell 2009-11-07 23:45:10 UTC
I built my own RPM, with the spec file from the existing RPM, and just changed the version; it works wonderfully.  It would be nice to see this in Fedora 12.
