Title: Re: [Evolution] Evolution 2.8 asks for password and then freezes

Thanks for the response Roland, unfortunately it doesn't seem to work.  I've installed pam_keyring, and have also set the environmental variables as shown below:

laptop> gnome-keyring-daemon

laptop> export GNOME_KEYRING_SOCKET=/tmp/keyring-qdYsbQ/socket
laptop> export GNOME_KEYRING_PID=16304

I guess what confuses me about my problem is, unlike others with a similar issue, I'm running Fedora Core 6 with Gnome, not KDE.

Also, I cannot enter any password into evolution.  The password window won't accept any input after a very short amount of time (the time it takes for evolution to come up).  At this time evolution completely freezes, and I cannot even look at mail stored on this computer.  From what I gather by looking at the URL below and others, it seems everyone else can at least enter a password.  I've posted my problem to the forum at and had no luck.

By the way, sorry about the delay in responding.  I had to replace the keyboard on the computer with the problem, and until I did that I had no way of using the computer.
