    Default GNOME Keyring Bug? Need workaround. Default Keyring Setup


    Hello Experienced Gnome Penguinos-

    I have never configured any keyrings. I set up Evolution, and it's
    working, but sometimes Gnome wants me to allow it to access the default
    keyring to get the email password. It takes 3 cancel-deny tries to
    finally dismiss this dialog box, after which Evolution is working fine.

    I see that this is NOT an Evolution thing. Other users report the same
    thing in VINO, and on wireless access. The GNOME.org forum seems to
    think there is a bug when accessing severs, and has a bug and milestone.
    Some other distros have the same problem.

    ONE user says that they were able to DELETE the default keyring (which
    must have had an unknown default password) and then create a NEW default
    keyring with thier own password. This seems to have solved that user's
    problem. HOWEVER there were no instructions on how to do it.

    I think someone else was able to just stop the default keyring daemon.
    That would work too, although it's not as elegant. I'm now unable to
    find instructions.

    I'm somewhat of a newbie. Certainly to openSUSE, although I used Ubuntu
    casually for a while. And years ago A/UX, but that experience hardly
    applies. So please walk me through this step by step.

    Thanks!

    Hi
    The default keyring lives down in ~/.gnome2/keyrings
    ~/ is your home directory and don't forget the period before the gnome2
