Asking all gaim ppc users to use gaim-0.75-r5. It has a patch submitted to gaim upstream by the mighty benh himself. Fixed a bug on my old imac that wouldn't allow me to have any account but ICQ open.

There is still a separate bug with Yahoo authentication on big-endian machines, but ICQ, jabber, and MSN have been personally verified by me.

Basically I'm doing a push because the latest stable for ppc is gaim-0.67 and that is just sad. I'd like to get all arches on 0.75-rX ASAP.

Similar patch that benh sent, but for a different method. This makes gaim work without crashes in my ibook g4.

Patch can be found at http://zaheer.merali.org/gaim-0.76cvs-signals-varargs.diff

At last, a decent version of gaim that works on linux/ppc!

Great! benh must have missed that second function when submitting the patch to gaim. I'll let them know upstream as it's not in their CVS (yet).

Alright I've got the patch in place as well. Thanks again Zaheer.

I've just modified gaim-0.75-r5, and did NOT make a new revision.

Wait 30 minutes or so, rsync and re-emerge.

You can tell if you have the new one by looking in src_unpack():

Code:

    #epatch ${FILESDIR}/gaim-0.76cvs-varargs.diff
    epatch ${FILESDIR}/gaim-0.76cvs-signals-varargs.diff


I've just commented out the old patch for now. I took the patch you have and combined it with the old patch so we don't have a lot of little patches for a single file.

Just bumping this and asking you gentoo-ppc users to rsync and try gaim-0.75-r5 and let me know how it works for you.

I'm especially interested in the iBook G4 users, since I've had more than one report that it had previously failed for them.
