I've got SuSE 9.1 installed. I removed the provided GAIM since it was an older version, and successfully compiled and installed GAIM 1.21 from source and then successfully compiled gaim-encryption 2.35 and installed it from source. The gaim-encryption plugin files are in with the rest of the plugins in /usr/local/lib/gaim. However in GAIM > Preferences > Plugins, GAIM-Encryption is not in the list as it should be. I'd appreciate any ideas for getting it to work. Thanks. KH
Run gaim from the command line with the '-d' option. On startup, you will see a lot of output as it scans the plugins directory, and an error message for why it didn't try to load encrypt.so.
Hello! Before I start, I have since then played with RPMs, so you'll notice my libs are now in a different place (/opt/gnome/lib/gaim). Anyway, nothing changed. Here is the line that I think you'll be interested in:
plugins: /opt/gnome/lib/gaim/encrypt.so is unloadable: /opt/gnome/lib/gaim/encrypt.so: undefined symbol: gaim_br_thread_local_store
Thanks much! Kh
I got it working on SuSE 9.1!
Basically, I uninstalled the RPMs, and I went back to installing GAIM and GAIM-Encryption my original way, from the source files.
For both GAIM and GAIM-Encryption, they had to be configured with the --with-gnu-ld option.
For anyone else with SuSe 9.1, these configure options are _also_ necessary and are described here:
Maybe this helps others. KH
