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.

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.
