Description Christopher Stone 2008-05-19 03:31:27 UTC
NetworkManager will prompt the user for a password if the user uses KDM. This can by fixed by using the gdm settings found in /etc/pam.d and copying them over to /etc/pam.d/kdm

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2008-05-20 15:53:22 UTC
kde-settings-4.0-24.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
Comment 4 Christopher Stone 2008-05-25 00:44:35 UTC
I can confirm that NetworkManager does not ask for a password using these rpms. Also, the PackageManager icon seems to work better with PolicyKit now. I'm not sure how to test the screensaver thing, but otherwise, this works for me.
Comment 5 Thomas Sailer 2008-06-02 20:57:23 UTC
Works for me; are you going to request this to be pushed to -testing or -stable?
Comment 6 Christopher Stone 2008-06-07 21:05:33 UTC
I just noticed that the /etc/kde/kdm/background.rc file points to a non-existant file: Wallpaper=/usr/share/backgrounds/waves/2-sulphuric-waves-day.1600.png
Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-07 21:17:27 UTC
Oops... That's overridden by the theme we set, it's left over from the configuration we tried before we had fedorawaves-kdm-theme, when the Waves backgrounds weren't the final ones yet.

Comment 10 Kevin Kofler 2008-07-01 23:35:27 UTC
gnome-keyring-pam (which is not set up for KDM by this update) doesn't appear to work properly with KDM. I installed this update, then manually installed gnome-keyring-pam which was not installed. As a result, NM no longer asked me for my keyring password, but it also was not able to fetch the WPA key from the keyring (and prompted me for it). And yes, my GNOME keyring password is the same as my login password. Removing gnome-keyring-pam again restored the status quo (have to enter the keyring password, but the WPA key can be fetched from the keyring just fine).
Comment 11 Rex Dieter 2008-07-02 00:16:03 UTC
Kevin, there are HOWTO's for that. In short, if you weren't using gnome-keyring-pam before, you need to reset your keyring (password?), and start over, then everything "just works". Yes, far from ideal, but oh well.
Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2008-07-02 00:39:14 UTC
For completeness, here's the guide I (basically) followed to get it to work for me: http://fedoraunity.org/Members/thomasj/Gnome-keyring
Comment 13 Kevin Kofler 2008-07-02 00:44:19 UTC
The HOWTO says: > If you are useing NetworkManager (nm-applet) for your Wlan and you log in > next time at Gnome, you will be asked for a new Password for > gnome-keyring-manager. Give the same as your login password. From there your > keyring will automatic opened for you when you login. But my keyring password is ALREADY the same as my login password. Weird...
