Fedora 8 and Evolution keyring problem


I'm using Evolution for my email on Fedora 8 system. And I get then nasty problem that Fedora 8 will not accept my keyring password.

Matter of fact I'm not sure I have setup a keyring password, as I never encountered this problem before, I could use some assistance.

Are you still having this issue, if so create a new keyring then go back in and delete the old one.

I ran across this same error and it took me a little while to fix it. After you create a new one, in the box you can select the original one and delete it then it will work fine.

See if this works, if not post back...

I ran into the same issue

this is what fixed it for me

echo -n default > ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default

Evolution Keyring...

Didn't work for me but deleting them all did.

My issue was, like this thread's start, I never entered a keyring pwd and had no clue what it was looking for as a password. I killed evolution, deleted all files in ~/.gnome2/keyrings and restarted evolution which prompted me for new keyring passwords. It still requires a password, but at least I know what it is!

I had the same problem as in this thread, and this solved my problem thanks. But first I renamed the key I found in the catalog.
Code:
mv login.keyring login.keyring_OLD
then I did
Code:
echo -n default > ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default
.
