gnome-keyring updates after 22.214.171.124-1.fc11 break ssh-add
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:34:06 EST
In my .bash_profile, I have:
if [ -z "$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" -a -x "$SSHAGENT" ]; then
eval `$SSHAGENT $SSHAGENTARGS`
trap "kill $SSH_AGENT_PID" 0
When I login to GNOME, I open an gnome-terminal and run "ssh-add", then type in my passphrase. This has worked for several Fedora releases, to save me the time and loss of sanity that typing my passphrase 400 times costs.
With all rawhide updates of gnome-keyring after 126.96.36.199-1.fc11, ssh-add no longer works. It says things about being unable to connect to the daemon.
I've tried gnome-keyring-2.25.90-4.fc11 and gnome-keyring-2.25.5-1.fc11. Only by downgrading to 188.8.131.52-1.fc11 can I restore the expected behavior.
Is gnome-keyring-daemon not getting started, or does it crash ?
Well, I thought it was crashing, so I updated to gnome-keyring-2.25.90-4.fc11.x86_64 and rebooted... of course, it doesn't fail like it was before.
If I can reproduce this, I'll reopen it, but it seems to be working fine now.
