gnome-keyring probably does not use kernel built-in encryption nor cpu special security features

i glanced through the source code: they are pulling your d**ck

also i don't think it's a gnome problem. it's likely your linux distro admins that broke something. your next question is if it was a mistake. (it works for them, why not for you?)


gnome-keyring does not use kernel encryption nor cpu encryption and has no obvious ties to kernel. if it did: then gnome wouldn't run on freeBSD

it's possibly a "packaging problem that ubuntu created": but it's not kernel related.

i don't think it's secure though it's "useful and convenient", many like it

but really if it doesn't work. you should wonder if it's your job to fix everything broken that comes you way. how much is coming your way that is broken? if you cannot do simple things like passwords what else is broken? (not the kernel, the kernel at least is "stable" and not needy for fixing)

there are things you should fix but there are things that, if they are hacked and broken, you have to wonder if who broke it. it's your time.

From post #14

I had this since updating to 18.3,(newbie)I went to software manager & installed monodoc gnome-keyring-manuel-after 2 restarts-problem solved!

I performed this on my 18.3 and the shutdown went normally. It prompts to modify a couple of libmono components and I said yes. So I think manual here mean not automated rather then an instruction manual as is implied in the documents for this package.

I just hate that a self-described newbie dropped this solution down without a pedigree as though it had been given to him by an angel engraved on golden plates. Anyone have any authoratative commentary on this solution?
