Although I have been using Subversion since 1.2, so for quite a while, I'm very new to GNOME keyring. I would like to set it up but I don't seem able to do that.
I have, for testing, created a VM with CentOS 5.4. Then I have built Subversion 1.6.6 from source with the --with-gnome-keyring option.
The gnome-keyring-daemon is running (does it need any parameters?) and the keyring manager show an unlocked session called "session".
I have change the config file to use gnome-keyring and the servers files with store-passwords = yes and store-plaintext-passwords = no.
Still, when I update an existing wc I am asked for the Subversion password every time.
As I said I am totally new to keyring and stuff like that, so if anyone has successfully set it up please help me :-)
Of course, if you need more information just ask
