The power of openness includes unification.  I have finally setup Bitlbee to unify all of my IM clients (mostly Jabber) and IRC.  All running using irssi within screen.  I’m never without my IMs wherever I go.

I did have a couple issues with the 1.2.3-1 bitlbee package un EPEL.  It segfaults connecting to jabber servers.  However, this has been fixed in the forth coming 1.2.3-4 package.  See bug 501786.

Next, Bitlbee would not connect to jabber chats that require a password.  I found this issue fixed in bitlbee’s ticket tracking system.  Ticket 397.

Once I had those issues patched I have a very functional bitlbee setup. Here is my source package.
