Description Tom Tromey 2014-08-19 14:48:59 UTC
I had to set smime-CA-directory in my .gnus.
I did this:

(setq smime-CA-directory "/etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt")

However, it seems to me that this is something that
should probably be done by default by the Fedora packaging.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 4 Glenn Morris 2016-02-05 22:55:11 UTC
I don't understand this report (which by the way was forwarded to
http://debbugs.gnu.org/20960 ).

On RHEL7 at least, /etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt is a (symlink to a) file, not a directory. So I can't see that the applied patch makes any sense.

Maybe there was a typo in the original report?
Perhaps "smime-CA-file" was intended?

Comment 5 Jan Synacek 2016-02-08 08:25:15 UTC
My mistake... On Fedora, this should be (setq smime-CA-directory "/etc/ssl/certs/"). I'm not even sure why this was proposed to be "fixed" upstream, it looks like a downstream "configuration" to me. Thanks for pointing this out!
