Description Enrico Scholz 2004-08-06 15:56:40 EDT
Description of problem:

Please enable the 'negotiate' method in curl; this can be done by adding

| --with-gssapi=/usr/kerberos

to %configure in the spec-file.

With a small modification (changing lowercase 'http' to 'HTTP'; see
and using bogus usernames (see
it works well with the mod_auth_kerb package.

This auth-method is supported by recent Mozilla/Firefox also.
