Angry How to get rid of the gnome keyring ?


I was asked by gaim to make a keyring and i gave a pass for it as i thought i would be able to disable it later on.

yet after lots of googling i havn't found anything yet and i'm sick of the idea of having to suply a password to open gaim every time i open it [and for the other apps too].

I tried to delete /home/me/.gnome2/keyring/*
that didn't solve it

i tried to remove the package through yast [i got opensuse 10.1]
yet lots of packages depend on it.

It's so stupid to be forced to use a password manager when you realy don't need one.
If anyone knows a workaround please say so.

At least i can always switch to KDE .....

why did you need to use a password to run gaim. Gnome keyring is usually configured so that you don't have to keep typing the root password over and over again in a single session... but then it usually asks if you want to use the feature.... I remember (at least in debian) that there was a setting in the admin menu to turn it off.

Unfortunately there no such thing in suse.
Or if there is, it's well hidden....

I've been searching for hours about it
but i switched to kde which is also very good.

Hope they'll fix it in the next gnome version.
