Description Ruben Jenster 2006-07-11 18:46:44 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.3)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

Since today afternoon kopete refuses to connect to my ICQ account with the following message (in german):

"Der ICQ-Server ist der Meinung, Sie verwenden einen zu alten Client. Melden Sie dies bitte als Fehler unter http://bugs.kde.org"

in english "ICQ-Server thinks your Client is to old ..."

Has ICQ changed something?

Comment 2 Mathias 2006-07-12 18:56:09 UTC
Where can i get a fixed version of Kopete? 
Comment 3 Roman Jarosz 2006-07-12 19:04:52 UTC
See bug 130630, you can compile svn version or get some binary files if available.
Comment 4 Roman Jarosz 2006-07-12 19:07:20 UTC
I just saw you are using gentoo than emerge net-im/kopete-0.12.0-r2
Comment 5 Bram Schoenmakers 2006-07-12 19:07:46 UTC
In Gentoo, the fix has been applied in net-im/kopete and kde-base/kopete. Diego (a.k.a. FlameEyes) was not able yet to apply it to kde-base/kdenetwork yet. Of course you should look for the ~arch packages.
Comment 6 Danilo 2006-07-12 23:27:51 UTC
I use too net-im/kopete-0.12.0-r2 and I have the same probleme...
What can I do?
Comment 7 Roman Jarosz 2006-07-12 23:49:25 UTC
Danilo, I tried on my gentoo and sources for compilation are with the fix, maybe the server wasn't synced.
try emerge --sync

and when you emerge kopete see if there is message
* Applying kopete-0.12-icqfix.patch ...  [ ok ]
near beginning

Other person reported that it works with net-im/kopete-0.12.0-r2

I am using Kopete 0.12.6 with KDE 3.5.9 and I have the same failure message! It's the first time after 3 month using without problems.
I am a Linux beginner - what shall I do?

Thanks for response!

Just got the same, but did all you people retry to connect? Because ICQ connected fine on the second attempt.
