Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 507498
Pidgin does not appear to use gssapi.
Last modified: 2009-06-22 21:25:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Pidgin appears to ignore gssapi as an auth method even with the cyrus-sasl-gssapi package installed. This is a regression from the way it performed before.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install pidgin
2. Install cyrus-sasl-gssapi
3. Attempt to auth against jabber server offering gssapi
Failure to auth, or even try to auth with gssapi
I will attache a pidgin -d from a working attempt (on RHEL 5) and a broken attempt on Fedora 11.
Created attachment 349022 [details]
Pidgin session from Fedora 11
This shows gssapi being offered by the server, and the client doesn't even recognize it as a valid auth option.
Appologies, it is working as it should be. Sorry for the noise.
