#16431: No Gadu-Gadu protocol support in 2.10.10 when internal libgadu is used
 Reporter:  arcctgx  |      Owner:
     Type:  defect   |     Status:  new
Milestone:           |  Component:  Gadu-Gadu
  Version:  2.10.10  |   Keywords:
 In the latest version of Pidgin there is a problem with Gadu-Gadu protocol
 if Pidgin is configured to use internal libgadu. Gadu-Gadu is not found in
 the list of available protocols anymore, and it's not possible to
 communicate with GG network.

 As a workaround, user can either downgrade Pidgin to the previous version,
 or to install external libgadu and recompile Pidgin. Nevertheless, since
 the breakage occured at a minor bugfix release, I suppose it's worth
 looking into.

 I'm using Pidgin package which comes with Slackware64 distribution. Here's
 the build info:

 sysconfdir=/etc' '--mandir=/usr/man' '--enable-dot=no' '--disable-schemas-
