ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 879
Package request for SIM-IM 0.9.5
Last modified: 2012-12-25 09:23:35 MSK
Description of problem:
SIM instant messenger. http://www.sim-im.org/
Latest version 0.9.5: http://sourceforge.net/projects/sim-im.berlios/files/
Would it be possible to package it for ROSA Marathon 2012?
I would consider sim to be dead for years. No bug/security fixes, no new functionality. What is the need for it?
I have also managed to use sim ~5 years ago, but then switched to kopete.
I want use MDC (http://bugs.rosalinux.ru/show_bug.cgi?id=882), but until last frisay used SIM.. =) My current dialogs base in SIM. I'm not offended failure.
Well, volunteers are welcome to build new packages for contrib repo:)
Hmm.. I don't see buildrpm from repositories.. 8|
Yes, the primary task is to create a spec file for ROSA:)
Sim-im requires qt3+ last update was in 2009 year.
The final verdict for now is that sim has been unsupported for a long time and uses old Qt3 libraries (that are also not supported by upstream for years). So we won't build sim (until it is resurrected - who knows what can happen in future?)
