Compiling Kopete with Freebsd-4.11


Freebsd sucks

./configure –prefix=`kde-config –prefix`

this required. otherwise kopete doesn’t know where kde is

if you get errors in videodevicepool.cpp comment out the following line in this file

file: kopete/libkopete/avdevice/videodevicepool.cpp

line: m_current_device = std::distance (m_videodevice.begin(), vditerator);

if you get errors in the jabber client’s xmpp-core, change the makefile in here

directory: kopete/protocols/jabber/libiris/iris/xmpp-core

the line is

depcomp = $(SHELL) $(top_srcdir)/admin/depcomp

gmake would be crying cause depcomp has not been given any arguments. just comment this line out and the compilation should go on smoothly.ps: if somebody can tell me why pidgin doesn’t work with gnutls on this

version of freebsd ( SSL handshake fails cause of unexpected packet size )

i will kiss their feet ( virtually of course )

pps: after all these hacks the stupid thing actually worked

ppps: will write better post from now on. even i cant understand what i have written.
