Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:35 EDT
Description of problem:
The window asking for your general keyring password is now broken, you can't
type your password and so you can't unlock your keyring.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gnome-keyring-manager (or any app using the gnome-keyring)
2. a window asking to unlock your keyring appears
3. you can't type anything this windows is not fully drawn and desktop is frozen
4. have to kill that window
apps using the gnome-keyring are enable to access your keyring because it's not
possible to unlock it.
should be able to unlock the keyring
sorry I don't know how to be more helpfull.
Can you upgrade to 2.20-4.f8 and test. We fixed a bunch of problems.
Also, if your ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default file is 0 bytes, do:
echo -n default > ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default
where can i find gnome-keyring-manager-2.20-4.f8? can't find it in koji
All my other gnome-keyring-* are already in 2.20-4
you mean ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default or ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring?
I only have default.keyring and it's not empty
Alex meant gnome-keyring-2.20-4.f8
And ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default (without extension)
default.keyring is the actual keyring, default is a text file containing the
name of the default keyring.
gnome-keyring-2.20-4 was already installed and now after upgrade:
[madko@Alcyone ~]$ rpm -qa|grep keyring
[madko@Alcyone ~]$ ls .gnome2/keyrings/
[madko@Alcyone ~]$ cat .gnome2/keyrings/default
The only change I can notice is the fact that the uncompletely drawn window
frozing my desktop and asking for keyring pass appears a second time when I kill it.
