Compile with --with-password
Last modified: 2010-09-06 18:24:56 EDT
Description of problem:
After restarting or something, it always prompt to enter the password. Other software of the same kind does not behave like this. I suggest compiling it with --with-password. So it will remember the password. I have tried modification the SPEC and it is working fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up
3. prompt to enter password
Would it be OK for you if you can rebuild the package with an 'with-password' option?
Upstream says that '--with-password-string' is recommended. I understand that for user this can be an annoyance but better be save than sorry.
gnubiff-2.2.13-3.fc15 has a build condition that allows users to rebuild the package with '--with-password'
