example (from konqueror - kde4):
An error occurred while loading http://gmail.com/:
Could not connect to host www.google.com: SSL negotiation failed.
After a bit of research I found some helping information about this - for more information read: http://dot.kde.org/1207154042/1207157732/1207159540/
According to the information I read there and on other sites this bug is qt4 related (not KDE's fault)
It works with openssl-0.9.8f
the patch (posted there) doesn't work for gentoo as of now... probabily SHLIB_VERSION_NUMBER is not resolved
If you need more info I'm willing to help with testing
Hi, I can reproduce this.
Konqueror of KDE4 can't connect to any HTTPS sites, Kopete (KDE4 too) can't connect any protocol that uses SSL / TLS like MSN Messenger or Jabber/Gtalk.
I'm open to do some tests but I need some help.
Here is a patch for this bug:
How to apply to a custom ebuild on my local overlay?
Is SHLIB_VERSION_NUMBER defined somewhere for properly usage in Gentoo?
I'll follow this track to provide help if I can.
No, I already tried applying that patch... aparently it doesn't work on gentoo...
and with modifying local ebuilds... copy file to files in the corresponding directory from /usr/portage/... add your file to PATCHES="..." field.. check other ebuild to see how this is done... when you finish, type ebuild $ebuild_name digest, after this you can emerge it
I copied the original qt.ebuild into my local overlay and added a line "epatch" with this patch and copied the patch into the files directory. I'm not sure if this is the right method, but I really sure that the patch has been applied as I expected.
After emerge this custom ebuild that applies the patch, the bug persists so yes, it seems that doesn't works on gentoo.
Qt builds but no changes on the behavior.
I reviewed too the Qt 4.4 sources for the solution and it seems quite more complex that the patch provides.
It seems that the bug (if really exists :P) has been solved in Qt 4.4, so... we can patiently wait.

If the problem reappears in current Qt versions, feel free to reopen.
