2.10.10 Build not working / NSIS Script Error?

Reported by: kumpa Owned by: EionRobb
Milestone: Component: unclassified
Version: 2.10.10 Keywords: build-pidgin winpidgin build crosscompile


Hello pidgin-community.

I've trying to compile the offline installer of pidgin on windows following your winpidgin-guide ( I've tried this on ubuntu/debian, xubuntu/debian and windows (cygwin32 and 64, native and virtual) multiple times. I can't figure out my mistake on this. Dependencies are checked multiple times too, also setup the build environment multiple times. I hope someone can give me an advice.

Best regards

Does the file that NSIS is complaining about actually exist?

File: failed opening file "..\..\..\./pidgin-2.10.10-win32bin\ca-certs\AOL_Member_CA.pem"

This is relative to the pidgin/win32/nsis directory.

I see these permissions errors in your log, which are probably the root cause of the problem:

C:\devel\pidgin-devel\win32-dev\mingw-4.7.2\bin\strip.exe:./pidgin-2.10.10-win32bin/plugins/autoaccept.dll: Permission denied

Thank you for your reply datallah - I've solved the problem yesterday: You're right - strip.exe / binary of gcc compiler suite has got a permission problem. The "PidginDevRoot?" Folder (parent folder of pidgin-2.10.10 and win32-dev) was at the path C:\devel\ like the BuildingWinPidgin-howto told me. But that's a problem at windows7 (I think it's because window's User Account Control?). The solution is to change the "PidginDevRoot?" Folder to your User-Account for example (e.g. C:\Users\myUserAccount\PidginDevRoot?\...). NSIS, Cygwin, Perl goes to C:\. Worked fine for me!

best regards and thank you very much
