Description of problem:
gaim when running on 64bit archs fails yahoo authentication on 64bit
architectures like x86-64, but works on i386 and ppc32.  When a login
fails, it reports that the password was incorrect.

this is an ethereal .cap of a successful i386 logon (password has been
temporarily changed at yahoo for security reasons)

this is a failed yahoo login attempt on a x86_64 system.  The password has been
temporarily changed at yahoo for security purposes but is the same as the i386
Comment 3 Karen Spearel 2004-05-02 21:08:10 EDT
can supply further data as needed
Comment 4 Karen Spearel 2004-05-02 21:13:16 EDT
something, perhaps about the attachments, made bugzilla very
mad...they were only a little over 3k apiece...complained about
insufficient disk space.  Can send them directly on request.
Comment 5 Karen Spearel 2004-05-04 02:49:06 EDT
I guess it is understood that resp_6 and resp_96 have differing values
for the i386 (successful login) and x86_64 (fails with unknown status)
so there is something broken in yahoo_process_auth_new...I guess I
don't get to hand the ball off to someone else to figure out what/where
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2004-05-04 03:02:09 EDT
grim in #gaim found the problem in src/sha.*, which was improperly
using an unsigned long.  He is cleaning up some 64bit compiler
warnings, then we are testing it on all archs (i386, ppc, x86-64)
before issuing the package update.  I may post test packages here in a
few hours.
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2004-05-04 04:55:52 EDT

Please test the gaim-0.77-4 builds here, which should fix yahoo
authentication on x86-64.  Please test it for an extended period of
time on i386 and ppc too to make sure we did not break anything by
Comment 8 Warren Togami 2004-05-05 00:12:57 EDT
gaim-0.77-4 -5 and -6 are fixed, should hit rawhide tomorrow.
