OK. tried on another system, fresh 2010.1 KDE install.
After install only updated with synaptic.
Check with Pidgin -> Googletalk works, but hyves.nl not.
Check Synaptic for sasl -> only "libsasl2" installed, no plugins for libsasl.
Installed all available plugins -> hyves.nl connected with pidgin
Little confused for now. I thougt XMPP is XMPP, but I gues its not
For any dutch "kwekker" lovers @ hyves.nl: You need the libsasl plugins to connect
For now as Pidgin keeps moving to "away" Im thinking of switching to empathy for IM. Only have to figure out why my MSN and hyves.nl are not connecting....
Can't be the sasl thing any more
