Ah, right. So I thought it was the GCC version (Debian's is built with 4.7 and works which is why I tried) but I guess it was just that flag. Good call.

You probably want to modify just that flag of CFLAGS instead of overriding the whole thing though. The gcc-47 PKGBUILD has something like this:

export CFLAGS

to override just that part of CFLAGS. Maybe you could do the same?

PKGBUILD modified to use -fstack-protector instead of the default -fstack-protector-strong. Everything looks good here, using freshly installed pidgin-mini (with modified PKGBUILD to include meanwhile/sametime prpl) and meanwhile packages.

Thanks for the heads up!

Alright, I'll take a look at getting this package to compile (and function) with 4.9, but given Linus' comments, gcc itself might indeed be broken.

On second thought, I think I'll wait to see if Linus' complaints about 4.9.0/1 will mean that 4.9.2 will fix this...

Just a PSA: I found out that it appears that GCC 4.8 or 4.9 broke this package with pidgin. It will still build, but I was unable to log in to any of our Sametime servers (it always said verification down).

I compiled this package (but not pidgin or libpurple) with the gcc-47 package from the AUR, and it works again.

You can do the same thing by installing gcc-47, modifying /etc/makepkg.conf to temporarily change "-fstack-protector-strong" to "-fstack-protector" in your CFLAGS, and then building this with "CC=gcc-4.7 yaourt -S meanwhile" or whatever AUR helper you use.

There's probably a slicker way to change the CFLAGS without modifying makepkg.conf but I was in search of a sure-fire method =P

I'll take a look at the source to see if I can fix it for real with a patch.

Package adopted and updated, thanks!

Hi rstrox,

I don't use arch anymore so I cannot really go ahead with this. I have just orphaned this package so please feel free to grab it and incorporate fixes yourself.

Would it be possible to incorporate a fix for Sametime ~8.5, where Pidgin crashes upon accepting a group chat invite? I created an updated PKGBUILD and patch at [1], the bug can be found at [2], and the patch was taken from [3].

Please, update this PKGBUILD with fix_glib patch.
