Lotus Sametime with libmeanwhile1 built with GCC5 on openSUSE Tumbleweed 07012015

10 Jul

The openSUSE project updated Tumbleweed to include packages built with GCC5. Immediately after the upgrade I noticed my pidgin wouldn’t log into Lotus Sametime.

When attempting I continued to get the following error:

(09:34:44) meanwhile: session state: stopping (0x80000214)
(09:34:44) connection: Connection error on 0x7fa6445e0860 (reason: 3 description: Login verification down or unavailable)

Since libmeanwhile1 code hasn’t changed in many years I decided to pull an openSUSE libmeanwhile1 from openSUSE 13.2 and interestingly enough it worked.

I’ve since filed bug 936955 which I believe is attributed to a compiler bug.

If you’re running into this you can copy the library from the libmeanwhile1 built on 13.2. I’ll work on compiling on my build system to help debug whenever I get some free time.


I am ben kevan.. Well yeah. .that's about it.
