20091026 gnutls-2.8.4 [VL6.0]
« on: October 26, 2009, 02:11:28 pm »

rbistolfi has built a new Gnutls package for VectorLinux 6.0.
   
      
   
Code: [Select]
gnutls: gnutls (GNU TLS library)
gnutls:
gnutls: This is a TLS (Transport Layer Security) 1.0 and SSL (Secure Sockets
gnutls: Layer) 3.0 implementation.  In brief, GnuTLS can be described as a
gnutls: library which offers an API to access secure communication protocols.
gnutls: These protocols provide privacy over insecure lines, and were designed
gnutls: to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery.
gnutls:
gnutls: Homepage: http://www.gnu.org/software/gnutls/

   After testing this package please stop back here and let us know how it works for you.

I've updated this package and it broke "claws-mail" when trying to get mail from my gmail account.  When lauched from terminal I received the following message "Ohhhh jeeee: operation is not possible without initialized secure memory" and the app crashes. Google pointed to gnutls as the likely source. When I reverted to version 2.6.2 I can access my gmail from claws.

Thanks for the report John. Since this is a security related update, I will see if rebuilding claws against new gnutls solves it.

It's the same exact thing here.
Going back to 2.6.1 fixes the problem with claws-mail
