Keyring problem


When I try to check disks ( fstab ) in gnome I keep getting this annoying dialog box asking for keyring /usr/bin/gsku.

What is this and how do I configure it?

I am using Debian 4.0r5.

the keyring is gnome-keyring is that package installed ?

apt-cache policy gnome-keyring

if it's promptiong for a password, the password would only be saved by gksu for your current gnome session and would be requested again the next time you login and use that program again..

This is what i did:

sudo apt-cache policy gnome-keyring
gnome-keyring:
Installed: 0.6.0-3
Candidate: 0.6.0-3
Version table:
*** 0.6.0-3 0
500 cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r5 _Etch_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-1 20081023-23:00] etch/main Packages
500 http://ftp.esat.net etch/main Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


Then went to gnome

Desktop >>> Administration >>> Disks and now getting following dialog box:

Enter password for default keyring to unlock. The application gsksu /usr/bin/gsksu wants to access the following keyring but is locked...

no it's a nickname from an online game I used to play as a sniper
Farslayer is also known as the sword of Vengeance.. in the Book of swords by Fred Saberhagen
Yes, Farslayer struck fear into the hearts of the opposing team..from a long distance. heh


OK that package is installed.. not sure why you are getting that error..
have you tried googling for the exact error message?
