How to install Pidgin 2.0.0 (and 2.0.1) with Sametime support on openSuse 10.2

How to install Pidgin 2.0.0 (and 2.0.1) with Sametime support on openSuse 10.2

Quote:
After about 2 hours worth of troubleshooting, I finally managed to compile Pidgin correctly, but you need prerequisites (which is really not documented well).

FYI, the rpms I listed below *may* have dependencies, so I suggest installing these files through YaST, since you might already have Installation Sources that have the dependencies available for download and installation.

Before you begin, rename the ~/.gaim/ to ~/.old_gaim/. (I never had to revert back to these old settings/preferences, but it's just good practice!)

On openSUSE 11 and above, install libpurple-meanwhile from the openSUSE online repository. This provides sametime support, and is not installed by default. I think this might apply to older versions of openSUSE also - add the OSS repository to your installation sources and search for this package. No need to recompile.
