First of all, thanks to all three of you for sending me your debug-messages. I've had a few days of hardcore-work lately (the work that I get paid for) and didn't get much done on Pidgin. :-/ I did get at chance to take a close look yesterday though and I'm afraid, I'll probably let this thing go. First of all, I was hoping that you guys didn't get that nat-pmp messages. A friend of mine who uses Pidgin under Windows doesn't get them either. If this were the case, I'd habe a pretty good guess ready as to what lib I'd have to examine - it might even just have been a quirk in the make and/or configure options. Since this isn't the case, I'd have to look through a ton of libs and fine out where this problem is actually coming from. And that could be very extensive. For all I know at this point, it might even be a problem with FreeBSD on sparc64 - and *that* is something I really don't feel like investigating. I've already started a thread a thread on the Pidgin support mailinglist, but the response there was everything but promising. I even supplied debug info using the gdb (as we had on this list too). There was no response worth mentioning. I got a few questions but not even a rough direction in which I should look a little harder. The mailing list had extremely little traffic for the time that I have been on it, so I guess the comunity isn't all that active. The very thin documentation on the Pidgin home page seems to suggest this too. The *programming* community is very active - I can read the sf-statistics too. :-) But that won't help me much if I can't get in touch with them using normal channels and bugging the developers with problems is usually not a good idea. Well, since I keep in touch with a lot of people at my university via IM, I took a look at the daughters of other mothers :-) out there. Somehow I got stuck with Kopete which at first looked a bit crappy to me but I was completely wrong about that. It looks good and it feels good, which means it's both fun *and* productive to work with. Ok, you have to play around a bit with the themes for the chat windows (displaying a big avatar for every line written is pretty silly in my eyes), but you can quite easily get a window that is both good to look at while still keeping the emphasis on the communication, not on eye candy. Besides that, I like Kopete's buddy list because each contact is a meta-contact by default and behind his or her avatar all the services with wich he or she is online are listed, so you can choose what protocol to contact this person with. This is important because file transfer isn't supported with all protocols. Pidgin requires more effort for this, because you have to open the list for a meta-contact first. I will be investigating why Pidgin didn't run on my machine, but I won't be doing that at full throttle... BTW. If anyone needs a new buddy in his or her list, let me know. :-) But contact me via private eMail first, please. I'm not to crazy about publishing my UIN or whatever on a mailing list that can bei viewed on the web by anyone.
