For me, on pdaxii13 5.4.7, pidgin_2.0.2_1_armv5tel.ipk from Meanie(new packages announcements thread) works with MSN but not with gmail(SSL Handshake failed !)
same problem for me : i've installed pidgin 2.0.2 with ipkg install under pdaxii13 5.4.9.it works ok for all im but jabber (SSL Handshake failed).
after a googlesearch, i found that pidgin needs to be recompiled with a special option:
HOT TO FIX THE TLS ERROR FOR GOOGLE TALK IN PIDGIN!
In a couple of Really Easy Steps:
Since there is no Pidgin Package for Ubuntu yet, I assume you are already building from the source.
do 'make clean' if you have already built it and you get the error.
Open Synaptic Package Manager, search for and install 'libgnutls-dev'
When you run ./configure to build Pidgin, do './configure --enable-gnutls=yes', then look for
SSL Library/Libraries......... : GnuTLS
when it finishes.
