To:Debian Bug Tracking System From:Emilio López Subject:Bug#664527: pidgin: libpurple0 depends on libgstfarsight0.10-0, which conflicts with empathy Date:Sun, 18 Mar 2012 13:48:19 -0300

Package: libpurple0
Version: 2.10.2-2
Severity: important
Tags: upstream patch

farsight2 is being deprecated and replaced with farstream. This change has
been already made in empathy, and it's preventing people from having
both installed simultaneously.

There is code on pidgin's bugtracker to make the switch, see

I have patched the pidgin deb with that patch and updated it accordingly,
and it builds, installs and runs fine (I haven't tested the actual video
call functionality though). I attach a debdiff with these changes.
