Default Yahoo! related Pidgin problems...

Hey,

If anyone here uses Pidgin, you may notice a strange Yahoo! disconnection bug, the following patch will fix things.

Patch/Fix:
http://developer.pidgin.im/viewmtn/r...4e784b26b1ced7

Bug report:
http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/7161

Error message:
"Unknown error number 0. Logging into the Yahoo! website may fix this."

Notes:
I've manually merged this.. minus the 0/1 -> FALSE/TRUE changes.
Works fine under OpenBSD 4.3 with Pidgin 2.3.1 so far.

Hope it helps..

To help this along, attached are the patches for OpenBSD 4.3, it's probably a good idea to modify the Makefile and change the patch value from p0 to p1.

Still working fine here btw, from 11pm GMT -4, to 3am GMT -4...

Do you have a patch to stop the spam IM from Yahoo!??

I've had a yahoo account for years, mostly due to certain friends unwillingness to use anything else... I've never received any IM spam, perhaps a few weird ones.. but quite rare.

If you're getting a lot of spam, it's because you advertise your screen name on either: a) forums b) chat rooms.

No patch can ever fix that..

There is no newer Pidgin version for OpenBSD or you guys just too slack? Because from version 2.5, iirc (check change log in pidgin website to confirm that), offline MSN msg is supported. Its long waited feature

Besides the Yahoo problem, MSN has its own problem, too. Pidgin often complains the certificate from MSN is error. No big deal though, just 1 click away

All port development is done on -CURRENT, OpenBSD 4.4-CURRENT has Pidgin 2.5.1, which does not have the patches I posted above either.. they are due out in 2.5.2.

The reason I posted it was because it's a trivial fix for an annoying problem that effects *me*, I thought others here might find it useful.

Patching 2.3.1 was easy, updating to 2.5.1 on 4.3 was simply unnecessary labour in my opinion..

I don't use MSN, so it's not an issue for me.

For some reason, I've only seen this error once or twice, from my windows machine.

I rarely use YIM, most people I know use AOL or MSN; but I'm logged into YIM at all times; when Pidgin is up that is.

You did fetch & extract the source distfile... correct?

I don't use FreeBSD, but following ports(7).
% sudo make fetch
% sudo make extract

Find the sources 'work' directory, find the proper level of the hierarchy... apply patch...
