Description Michal Januszewski (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-07-25 08:06:16 UTC
Since switching to development-sources-2.6.8-rc1 I can't connect to anymore (Jabber, SSL). Gaim shows 'Connecting..' and hangs - the user interface doesn't respond and I have to do `killall -9 gaim` to get rid of it. So far I've tested:
- recompiling gaim with CFLAGS="" - still hangs,
- a 2.6.8 kernel with no support for iptables and other network related features, I had only a driver for 'RealTek RTL-8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter' compiled into the kernel - still hangs,
- rebuilding glibc and glib - still hangs.

All other protocols and non-SSL jabber work correctly. In the jabber options, I've got "Use TLS" and "Old SSL" selected. I'd appreciate some comments about what else to check. It'd also be nice is someone using could try gaim with a 2.6.8 kernel and if it works, send me/post his kernel config and `emerge info` output for diffing.

My `emerge info` output:

I haven't had much luck with and moved away from it.  I happened to try from home where it still does im.gentoo and hit failed to connect.
Comment 2 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-07-26 08:03:27 UTC
yeah this is definitely not a gaim issue.  I use jabber just fine in other places and I assumed that everyone thought was flaky.

Spock, if you want to re-assign to maybe cybersystem.  I think he runs
Comment 3 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-07-27 14:45:36 UTC
I'm going to resolve this as CANTFIX for gaim-bugs.  If you'd like you can reopen and assign to cybersystem (I think that's who runs it).  All of my jabber accounts work just fine, so this is definitely on the server side.
