Gaim+GTALK: Server does not use support any authentication method


I'm trying to connect to google's GTalk service via Gaim and I'm getting the following error:

Quote:
Server does not use any supported authentication method
Do I need to install something? Any ideas on how to fix this?

What version of Gaim and has it ever worked before? I know I've tried connecting to GTalk with Gaim on a Windoze box and the connection is always flaky, so it might be a server problem also.

gaim-1.5.0, I've just installed Slackware and upgraded to -current. Yes, it's always worked for me on distributions such as Gentoo, Debian, Fedora Core, Ubuntu.

The issue lies in SSL. Try recompiling and point it to your libraries (I'm nor using my computer right now, so I can't tell you exactly how) It might be worth a look to try and compile Gaim 2.0.

FIX: seamonkey needed to be installed.

Question

Why did seamonkey solve it? I've installed gaim plenty of times, and never seamonkey.

[Slackware / Pat's build of] Gaim used to need mozilla for TLS. Now it needs seamonkey [the *new* mozilla].
