pam_keyring does not prevent prompt for keyring password
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
After logging in, NetworkManager's wireless connection manager asks for a key
form the keyring, and the keyring password prompt appears.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (or almost always)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and configure pam_keyring for gdm.
2. Log in.
3. Do something that requires keyring access.
Keyring pasword dialog pops up.
Keyring password dialog does not pop up.
My keyring and login password are identical.
My /etc/pam.d/gdm contains the following:
auth required pam_env.so
# auth sufficient pam_unix.so likeauth nullok
auth optional pam_keyring.so try_first_pass
auth include system-auth
account required pam_nologin.so
account include system-auth
password include system-auth
session optional pam_keyinit.so force revoke
session include system-auth
session required pam_loginuid.so
session optional pam_console.so
session optional pam_keyring.so
The problem occurs with F7 kernels (kernel-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 and
kernel-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7), but not with the latest FC6 kernel
Behavior is the same with the "auth sufficient" line uncommented. With the FC6
kernel, commenting the "auth sufficient" line is required to get it to work.
Known problem, expect a fix soon.
