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 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.
