Description Leander 2004-06-19 17:17:33 UTC
gaim-vv stands for "Gaim Video and Voice Support" (no trailing s though), a project hosted on sourceforge:

So far, I've been able to see a friend on his webcam using yahoo im, I'm don't know about voice and others protocols. But I'm sure this feature alone is really more important than a new set of smileys...

Note that libj2k needs to be installed and patched (all sources available on the sourceforge site of gaim-vv). As I don't know if i have to open a new bug for it since it might be a dedicated version for gaim-vv, i'll include the ebuild and the patch in this bug report.

It's impossible to install gaim-vv if gaim is already installed, because they share the same directories (actually I just modified the gaim ebuild), and also because I don't know how to install it somewhere else. If it's not possible to move it, the gaim ebuild will have to be updated to forbid its installation when gaim-vv is already emerged.

Reproducible: Always

Comment 4 Leander 2004-06-30 17:29:17 UTC
Since yahoo chanaged its protocol (again) a few days ago, this gaim version is unable to connect anymore (wrong password error), so unless the author updates it and releases a new version, those ebuilds are unfortunately useless.
Comment 5 Mitchell 2004-07-12 10:30:05 UTC
The author did update the program to use version 0.79 of gaim, which is able to support the new yahoo login method.

This is a mess, especially with the need for a special libj2k and linphone.  Basically it isn't ready for production yet.  When it is, it will be merged into gaim anyway.
Comment 7 Argian 2004-07-29 02:47:36 UTC
There's a problem with the libj2k ebuild. Must add "inherit eutils" at the beginning of the ebuild.

This new ebuild is mainly a version bump, I think I just changed the number of
the version, because portage doesn't seem very happy with the -vv between
version numbers and I didn't figure out how to trick that.

Linphone isn't "supported" yet, I'll try to add it later if nobody does before.

I'm aware that this project is just a friendly fork to keep focus on
audio/video, I hope it doesn't bother you if we keep ebuilds in bugzilla for
interested people, until they merge it back in gaim itself.

Added "inherit eutils" in the top of the ebuild, thanks to Argian for pointing
out the problem. It looks like this requirement is quite recent, and I didn't
notice since I was too lazy to bump to 0.0.9 version.

This is a corrected version of the ebuild for people who don't use
/var/tmp/portage as a working directory, thanks to DuF for notifying us about
that ( ), now the
ebuild should work whatever your PORTAGE_TMPDIR variable is set to.
Comment 11 Nathan Adams 2004-10-09 06:41:27 UTC
How do I get this installed? I don't see gaim-vv in portage. By the way, bounces for me.
Comment 12 Thomas K 2004-10-23 05:17:30 UTC
I suggest you read that:

And if you didn't try yet, look for help on the forums for using a local portage tree ;)

The gaim-vv tar file hase been updated to -v3. {see below}

Will anyone be updating these ebuilds for same? The current ebuild won't work because it can no longer find gaim-vv.tar.gz. Given the apparent addition of linphone-im and libosip, I know that changes to the ebuild(s) are far beyond my meager skills and general bungling incompentence.
