Re: Automating pam_keyring...

It should just work for default desktop installs moving forward. I
frankly don't care how.

Or add a patch to the gdm package and make it require pam_keyring ?

uhm should avoid making this a hard requirement for gdm.  Can pam deal
with a scenario
where pam_keyring is referenced as an optional rule in the auth stack
but the pam_keyring module is not actually installed? And don't we at
least have to also consider this being used in the pam stack for kdm,
since kdm can start a gnome desktop session?

Or do we want to make this feature optional from authconfig ?
I'm not sure if this makes much sense. Since the keyring isn't
referencing any systemwide or networkwide resources when doing the
authing and is inherently a per user thing I'm not sure I see a clear
use case where this needs to be configurable (other than spite.)

Another issue is how do we update the keyring password when the user
changes his/her password ?

Do you really want to automate this for all users? Some users might
want a deliberately separate password.
