gnutls >= 2.8.4-i486-1_slack12.1

This version of pidgin depends on gnutls 2.8.4, which is reported to brake claws-mail.

However, after I removed gnutls 2.8.4 and installed gnutls 2.6.1 I was able to run both pidgin and claws mail.

Well, it could be a problem with claws mail, and not gnutls, so I don't actually know what to do, I just wanted to let you know about the issue. ;)
