Description Matthew Saltzman 2007-06-14 18:35:19 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
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.
Actual results:
Keyring pasword dialog pops up.

Expected results:
Keyring password dialog does not pop up.

Additional info:
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.
