Description Bram Schoenmakers 2006-07-11 10:10:14 UTC
Since today, Kopete is not able to connect to ICQ anymore (see KDE bug #130630: 
ICQ server thinks the client you are using is too old)

Could the fix in that BR appear in the net-im/kopete, kde-base/kopete and kde-base/kdenetwork ebuilds?

Already working on it.
Comment 2 Bram Schoenmakers 2006-07-11 10:36:53 UTC
Wow, FlameEyes, you're a freak (in the positive sense of the word of course :) Many thanks for working on this so quickly.
Comment 3 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-11 11:00:41 UTC
I'm unable to patch kdenetwork and kde-base/kopete right now, as the patch itself doesn't apply, will look what I can do about them.
Comment 4 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-11 11:05:08 UTC
False alarm, it applies, I just can't use PATCHES variable.
Comment 5 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-11 11:05:46 UTC
Err nevermind, it does _not_ apply :/
Now I'm a bit confused myself, but I'm afraid I can't do much about this.
Comment 6 Henning Rogge 2006-07-11 11:11:16 UTC
If the patch does run with net-im/kopete it would be great if you could post the patch file... it's annoying to be forced using webicq. ;)
Comment 7 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-11 11:12:25 UTC
The patch for net-im/kopete is now committed, kde-base/kopete and kde-base/kdenetwork will follow, now the backport is present.
Comment 8 Henning Rogge 2006-07-11 11:26:09 UTC
Are you sure the patch is committed ? I just looked through the webcvs of net-im/kopete and there is no patch.
Comment 9 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-11 11:50:22 UTC
It might take a bit to come to mirrors, but now all three of them are fixed in their latest ~arch version.
Comment 10 Henning Rogge 2006-07-11 11:58:12 UTC
Thank you very much for integrating the KDE fixes into portage.
Comment 11 Cyrill Helg 2006-08-01 03:01:44 UTC
The same problem came back. Since yesterday kopete says again: ICQ server thinks the client you are using is too old

I hope to see a fix again soon in portage :)
Comment 12 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-08-01 04:10:52 UTC
It is not the _same_ problem, it's just the same _symptom_, and it's fixed already:
Comment 13 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-08-01 04:14:22 UTC
I highly recommend you find something other than ICQ to use, considering how much they change the protocol.
