I'm using VL 5.8 Standard.  I saw the update for pidgin 2.1.0 show up in gslapt but it didn't let me upgrade due to a dependency issue.  Is the package only for SOHO?

That's strange, what exactly was the dependency issue? Do you have http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.8/patches/ in /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc? I think I used an updated dbus.

well it says pidgin needs glib2  version 2.12.12 to work.  And I looked and the current version installed is 2.12.10.  I have all 5 recommended repositories (packages, patches, extra, testing and unstable) enabled.  And I've done all the upgrades so I should have the most recent packages available.  I also did a search on http://www.linuxpackages.net/ and the required glib2 version isn't there.  The most recent one offered is 2.6.0 I think.

Ok I checked my VL SOHO box and the same problem is present.  I have gilb2 2.12.10 installed on both boxes and pidgin 2.1.0 depends on glib2 2.12.12 or more recent.

You didn't exactly build this on a clean box did you stoichyu?

The same problem here, pidgin wants 2.12.12. If I skip that dependency with the --no-dep option, others cause trouble.
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

No, but I took care not to update the base packages, but I guess I missed something. I'll just build a new version with a clean box. I don't even know how I got glib 2.12.12.

*EDIT*
I inspected my package and the slack-required file only requires glib-2.10.3, the stock version.

The problem is the latest version gslapt is picking up is pidgin-2.1.0-i586-2vl58.tlz, the one I built is 1vl58, I have no idea where that other package came from. I also tested my package with a clean box and it works.

I've removed the offending package from the patches/ repo (it never should have made it there in the first place...), so stoichyu's build is good for testing again folks.

I'm very sorry for this mix-up stoichyu  :-[
