Description Sean Middleditch 2005-03-02 15:12:06 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050227 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-2

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):

How reproducible:

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

changed component to gnome-vfs2 - sorry about that.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-04-27 21:05:44 EDT
We really should be linking to the system libneon anyway -- otherwise, we have
something else which may need updates at various points.
Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2005-05-03 11:40:16 EDT
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.
Comment 5 Sean Middleditch 2005-05-09 20:37:03 EDT
Yes, it works perfectly for me now.  Thank you.
Comment 6 David Zeuthen 2005-05-09 20:46:58 EDT
