Description of problem:
Gnome-vfs 2.9.x uses Neon 0.24. However, neon 0.24 does not properly support GSSAPI. In fact, Fedora already ships a patch with its Neon 0.24 that applies the GSSAPI code from the Neon 0.25 development series in order to get proper GSSAPI support. However, since gnome-vfs includes its own copy of Neon and does not use the system Neon, this patch does not help gnome-vfs.
I have ported the patch including in Fedora's neon package (http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/devel/neon/neon-0.24.7-gssapi.patch) to gnome-vfs 2.9.91. This patch when applied allows me to connect to WebDAV shares using GSSAPI in Nautilus and other gnome-vfs-using apps.
I have already filed this upstream with GNOME, but I think they are more likely to just wait to upgrade wholesale to Neon 0.25. Since Fedora cares more about GSSAPI/Kerberos than GNOME, I thought you guys might be interested in applying it for FC4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to connect to a webdav share using GSSAPI with a gnome-vfs-using app
2. won't work; you'll likely jsut be prompted for a password
3. apply patch, see it work beautifully
Created attachment 111590 [details]
update gvs neon library to use neon 0.25 gssapi support; patch from fedora originally
changed component to gnome-vfs2 - sorry about that.
We really should be linking to the system libneon anyway -- otherwise, we have
something else which may need updates at various points.
OK, gnome-vfs2-2.10.0-5 should appear in Rawhide tomorrow. Thanks for the
patches. Please let me know if the package works as intended.
Yes, it works perfectly for me now. Thank you.
Thanks for the testing. Closing this bug.
