How To Fix Kmail-Gmail IMAP

After a fresh install of Mageia 6 x64 I tried Kmail with a Gmail IMAP account and it worked. After doing the huge update, it stopped working.

I found this bug report about a missing package and symbolic link which fixed it for me.

kmail fails to authenticate imap connection to gmail

First install the Binary Package lib64kdexoauth2_3-17.12.2-1.mga6.x86_64.rpm
which is about halfway down the page under DOWNLOAD. ... 4.rpm.html

I don't know why but this package is not showing up in my repositories and it's listed as missing in the bug report.

Next, as root, do:

Code: Select all
ln -s /usr/lib64/sasl2/ /usr/lib64/sasl2/

That fixed it for me. If it doesn't work for you, then you have a different problem.
