I'm currently trying to look into it (as I mentioned above, it hasn't been working for me, for a while).

Apparently, it may have something to do with a gnutls conflict... the only workaround I've seen so far, as mikeb has found, is to compile Pidgin using nss and NOT gnutls. The thing is, though, according to this email on the Pidgin devel list, not only do you have to recompile Pidgin, you also cannot have gnutls installed on your system (well, at least in the (lib)purple directories).

Since I can't guarantee everyone using these builds won't have gnutls installed or will uninstall it just for the sake of using Pidgin, I'm trying to see if there's another workaround.

hmm thats just saying make sure the gnutls plugin is not left around from a previous build.

I have libgnutls (for what its worth now) around but not the plugin and it works like that and I just used the config parameter to disable it so no workaround needed ...load sfs and run in my case.

Trickeist part is making sure the nss dev files are ok. I still had what I needed from bulding gnome-mplayer. Puppy includes mozilla/ff in the path which helps when running.

I'm still using Pidgin 2.10.6 on Dpup Exprimo 3.4.2.10, and it's working perfect. Gtalk, MS Live and Yahoo messengers all working normally.

On Dpup Exprimo 3.6.2.1 I still had Pidgin 2.10.7, but that also did't work with Yahoo any more. Since 2.10.6 seems to be the working version, maybe somebody still has that pet?
I tried the SFS of 2.10.6 for Slacko, but that didn't start up at all on Exprimo

Well, datafilehost no longer has the original download (not that I expected them to still have it up, anyway), but I've re-uploaded it.

http://www.datafilehost.com/d/0e2146a3

This is the 2.10.6 .pet only. I don't know if it'll only work with the older version of gnutls I used to compile against, though.

Pidgin 2.10.10 has been released, so head to the first post of this thread for my builds to test.

Notable among the changes is this:

Quote:
    Yahoo

    Fix login when using the GnuTLS library for TLS connections.


...so for those of us who were unable to connect to Yahoo IM accounts with versions of Pidgin built against gnutls, you might (finally) be able to connect again.
(It seems to be working on my setup, although it initially threw an "invalid data received" error. I have yet to see if it'll also notify me of new email in my Yahoo inbox, like it used to do.)

Pidgin 2.10.11 has been released. This is mostly a minor update; it fixes (for the moment) connecting to MSN accounts, as well as a few other things.

The new builds are available in the first post of this thread, for testing.

I have been using dropbox here and elsewhere for a year or two for direct file links and had no problems... recommendations can get more free space. For direct links you change the url to 1 at the end instead of 0.

No expiry and no problems with corruption unlike other hosts I tried.
You can also link a whole folder which can be convenient for repositories.

Just in response to your first post.

Hmm... I don't know. I've been wary of Dropbox for a while, although it's been long enough that I don't really remember why. Shocked I'll keep it in mind, though.

Yes I don't understand why some have a problem with it.... its passed my tolerance test and they are consistant which many are not. We got an account each to total about 15GB storage. I made a simple gui which means you can use it as a file host rather than syncing backups...and its free. I tried a few...4shared when members only and horrible interface, mediafire...terrible file corruptions issues....

Some get paranoid about privacy but I have some backups of things like images of bootable windows and never had a sniff of a problem. For FOSS who cares...
