When I open Gajim and try to connect to my gmail account, it gives me the following:

  1. Warns about an insecure connection:

    Insecure connection: You are about to send your password on an unencrypted connection. Are you sure you want to do that?

  2. When I choose to connect insecurely, authentication fails, although my gmail username and password are correct:

    Authentication failed with "gmail.com": Please check your login and password for correctness.

  3. Shows a "programming error" window:

    A programming error has been detected: It is probably not your fault, but should be reported to the developers nonetheless.

    The details are:

    Traceback (most recent call last):

    File "/usr/share/gajim/src/dialogs.py", line 1538, in on_response_ok


    File "gajim.py", line 2238, in on_ok

    gajim.connections[account].connection_accepted(data[0], 'plain')

    File "/usr/share/gajim/src/common/connection.py", line 739, in connection_accepted


    File "/usr/share/gajim/src/common/xmpp/client_nb.py", line 445, in auth


    File "/usr/share/gajim/src/common/xmpp/client_nb.py", line 470, in _on_doc_attrs

    if not self._sasl or self.SASL.startsasl == 'not-supported':

    AttributeError: NonBlockingClient instance has no attribute 'SASL'

How can I fix this? I'm on Mandriva 2010.1

This was just reported as a bug a few days ago. Apparently Google sends data differently from other servers, so they'll need to handle it specially, but it's not fixed yet.
