Description Brian Pepple 2012-03-06 18:03:00 EST
Description of problem: Farsight2 is being obsoleted in Fedora 17, and pidgin needs to be ported to Farstream. A patch has been submitted by the farsight2/farstream upstream to pidgin, but has not been accepted yet. Until this is done, we are unable to Empathy for Gnome 3.4.

Here's a link to the upstream bug: http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/14936
Comment 1 Marko Myllynen 2012-03-21 06:05:50 EDT
The patch proposal from the upstream bug has now been merged:


However, now when trying make a jabber call to N900 Maemo phone or an audio call to MS Lync libpurple's fs2 media backend crashes.

pidgin-sipe developers are planning to check if they could improve the upstream patch so if/when that is done we'll need to update the Fedora patch, too.


Comment 2 Marko Myllynen 2012-03-27 05:46:13 EDT
By using the updated patch (v3) from the upstream ticket pidgin no more crashes. Please update the patch used in F17 to v3.
