Quassel bump on OpenIndiana

Posted on

Folk — ok, just Johannes — showed up in #kde4-solaris asking about Quassel packages for OpenIndiana. Quassel is a disconnected IRC client, useful if you move from computer to computer regularly and want to take your IRC session with you. We have a specfile, but it isn’t built as part of our usual KDE consolidation. The specfile was also still version 0.3, which is pretty darn old.

With that as motivation I’ve bumped Quassel to 0.7.1. It compiles, without much patching (available in the Mercurial repo), just one gcc-linuxism related to stacktrace C++ name mangling. Easy to replace with the code we already use in kdelibs, or for simplicity with backtrace(int fd). Packages will be available shortly.
