Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 800683
Pidgin needs to be ported to farstream for F17
Last modified: 2012-07-09 21:23:03 EDT
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
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.
By using the updated patch (v3) from the upstream ticket pidgin no more crashes. Please update the patch used in F17 to v3.
