linux cd.org and default keyring


Happy New Year!

I have two dumb problems.

1. I bought a disk from linuxcd.org that came cracked in half. I tried to email them about it but all 4 email addresses they post came back undeliverable. Does anyone know any more about this or have tried contacting them?

2. I just hooked up a new router and after I set the passphrase for the wireless, I got a pop-up box that "nm-applet wants access to default keyring" and requested a password, which I didn't know where or what to look for. So I clicked deny. I didn't change anything else and my connection speed went to poo-poo instantly. I'm sure one of you fine members know exactly what I did wrong?


Thank You all for being here

only ever had this come up when my password to login, and my keyring password were different from each other. When they were the same, though, I only got prompted once for my password by the keyring, but that was to set it.

Try setting both passwords to be the same.



Ok, just got this with a search, if I can set the password for the keyring the same as the wireless security passphrase, it will resolve the problem? How do I set the keyring password?

I am satisfied on the keyring issue. Since Ubuntu doesn't have a separate root account naturally, and I had forgotten that I had set one up like 2 years ago on this box, I put in that password and it's all good.


I still have a smashed disk from linuxcd.org though, anyone else been thru that?
