It's been a while and I don't remember exactly... I thought I had a working 
Slackbuild for Psi 0.12 on Slackware 12.2. But seeing that it fails to build 
now, I guess this was still on 12.1.

JK is mostly right. Psi needs Qt4, but not necessarily QCA2 as it comes 
bundled with the Psi source. However, the bundled QCA2 is the reason why the 
build fails. It seems like there were some changes in OpenSSL's API between 
the version QCA2 expects and the version that comes with Slackware 12.2.

Googling around a bit I found this patch...

...which makes my old Slackbuild work again. However, I don't know if the 
result actually works (I don't use Psi any more) and I don't know what other 
problems you might run into as a result of the incompatibility with the 
bundled QCA2 and Slackware's OpenSSL.

For those who dare:


They're not really SBo quality right now. But if they work for you and you 
want to take over maintenance, feel free to do so.
