Bug#380740: cannot connect to icq server - icq server thinks my client is too old

Package: kopete
Version: 4:3.5.4-1
Tags: patch, sid
Followup-For: Bug #380740


there is a bug report at


which points to information at


and a patch linked from that forum at


after which apparently it is only the "const WORD ICQ_BUILD" in line 240 of
"kopete/protocols/oscar/liboscar/oscartypes.h" that has to be changed into
"= 0x0BB8;", because after applying the patch here with apt-get source etc.
my kopete client does again connect to ICQ.

I have attached the patch from above source, thanks to whoever was the
author, I could not have done it by myself because I am neither a developer nor
a package maintainer. ;)
