Description Devrim GUNDUZ 2006-12-07 01:50:39 EST
Description of problem:

The latest gaim update
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=217335) fixed the crash
problem. However, it cannot connect to the jabber servers that forces us to use
old-ssl port (5223)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gaim
2. Create a jabber account and use "force old ssl" in jabber options
3. Login to that account. It fails.

Actual results:
Got "Invalid response from server" message.

Expected results:
It can login in beta4, so I expected it to login successfully again.

Please do this:
1) Buddy List
2) Help
3) Debug Window
4) Then attempt a login to the jabber server.
5) Copy the relevant part from the debug window into a text file.
6) Attach that text file here.

Can you find any public Jabber server that exhibits this behavior?  Or could you
create an account on a private server to allow gaim developers to test this?

debug log as requested

This is the debug log as reque4sted from the latest gaim rpms:

gaim.x86_64 2:2.0.0-0.31.beta6.fc6 
gaim.i386 2:2.0.0-0.31.beta6.fc6

debug log from homebuilt gaim

I built gaim from source on the same machine as the previous
comment, and it connected just fine, as the attached log shows.

I have got to the bottom of this. I took the FC6 SRPM and disabled use of
cyrus-sasl in the spec and rebuilt. Problem disappears.
Comment 5 Stu Tomlinson 2007-04-06 22:23:08 EDT
You could probably have avoided recompiling without SASL support by installing
some appropriate cyrus SASL mechanisms instead (cyrus-sasl-md5 &
cyrus-sasl-plain would be a good start)
Comment 6 Andrew Dunstan 2007-04-07 08:52:32 EDT
Those are installed. Yum shows:

cyrus-sasl-md5.x86_64                    2.1.22-4               installed       
cyrus-sasl-plain.x86_64                  2.1.22-4               installed       

Comment 7 Mike Dillon 2007-05-02 12:42:50 EDT
I had the same results as Andrew. Connecting to our corporate Jabber server with
Gaim 2.0.0-0.31.beta6 resulted in a message that said "Invalid response from
server". When I recompiled the RPM without cyrus-sasl support, everything
worked. Like Andrew, I also have cyrus-sasl-md5 and cyrus-sasl-plain installed.

In my debug logs, I was seeing two "sasl" lines with "DIGEST-MD5 client step 2",
even though the first time seemed to succeed. Unlike Andrew's logs, which show
"Must see 'algorithm' once. Didn't see at all" after the second "DIGEST-MD5
client step 2" line, my logs said something like "No response from server".
Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of the logs and I'd have to reinstall the
broken version to get them.
