Kernel config

Issue with gnome-keyring-daemon on a fresh x86 install.

First occurrence when I launched Evolution and set up my mail account. After the wizard completed, Evolution asked for my mail password, and then asked me to enter a password to create a keyring for storing my information.

Clicking "Accept" after choosing a password hanged Evolution.

I have reproduced this issue with every application that uses gnome-keyring (NetworkManager, gnome-rdp, etc.).

My /~/.gnome2/keyrings/ folder is full of incremental "login.keyring" files with a size of O bytes each.

/var/log/messages indicates the following error at each attempt : gnome-keyring-daemon : no data returned from prompt. Not been able to create a keyring with Seahorse : it hangs like other apps after choosing a keyring password.

Information attached, no gdb output because I really didn't know how to use it in this case. I included the gnome crash report, though.

Sorry if I'm being stupid.

Comment 4 Julien Cabessut 2012-06-28 18:08:32 UTC
Just saw new messages in /var/log/messages, appearing when an application tries to access the keyring :

Comment 5 Anthony Garnier 2012-07-01 05:29:05 UTC

In /var/log/messages :

Jul  1 07:26:14 localhost kernel: gnome-keyring-d[5767] general protection ip:b75d99e4 sp:bff20e9c error:0 in[b75b1000+73000]

I cant get automatic pam key opening any more.

This bug happened right after this emerge -uDN world (I rebooted):

What is your dev-libs/libgcrypt version?
Comment 12 Julien Cabessut 2012-07-08 10:52:47 UTC
libgcrypt is 1.5.0-r2
Comment 13 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2012-07-08 11:01:40 UTC
I don't understand why your kernel is breaking this, will CC kernel team
Comment 14 Anthony Garnier 2012-07-09 11:51:04 UTC
I have two computers, one desktop and one laptop that share make.conf and installed packages. The only difference between the two is the .config: the desktop uses a stock gentoo kernel config, while the laptop uses a stock ubuntu 12.04 kernel config. I get the gnome-keurong bug with the desktop, but on the laptop everything works fine. I'll try to compile the desktop kernel with ubuntu kernel config.

Solves the problem for me.

Something is wrong with libgcrypt-1.5.0-r2 but I dont have enough skill to find why.
Comment 18 Julien Cabessut 2012-08-22 08:18:02 UTC
Anthony's solution of downgrading libgcrypt does solve the problem.

Thank you !
Comment 19 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2012-09-15 10:21:00 UTC
I have 1.5.0-r2 and doesn't suffer it :|
Comment 20 Gilles Dartiguelongue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-02-01 19:38:28 UTC
Could you guys try with rebuilding libgcrypt with gcc-4.6 ?
Also could you check if building gnome-keyring with USE="-debug" changes anything ?
I'm adding crypto herd since general protection fault in libgcrypt is certainly not a good sign.

Finally to produce better backtrace we would need you guys to rebuild all reverse dependencies of these packages with FEATURES="splitdebug" and -g added to CFLAGS. That covers at least libgcrypt, gnome-keyring, libgnome-keyring and glib.
Comment 21 Alon Bar-Lev (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-02-01 19:46:27 UTC
Just to make sure, can you please try libgcrypt-1.5.0-r4 as it contains fix for aes-ni.
Comment 22 Tom Wijsman (TomWij) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-02-01 20:57:07 UTC
(In reply to comment #16)
> kernel team, any idea?

Not me, although he is using =sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.2.12 so he could try newer versions like =sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.6.11 (gentoo stable), =sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.7.5 (upstream stable) and =sys-kernel/git-sources-3.8_rc6 (upstream mainline); maybe he has a kernel bug that has been fixed in the last 9 months.

g_spawn_sync is spawning a new process (, waitpid_nocancel waits for that process to change state and then it ends up in the kernel, probably waiting in kernel_vsyscall for that state to change. There is however no information what is causing this process to get spawned. All we get beyond hat point is an unfortunate 0x0:

> #3  0x00000000 in ?? ()

I think that capturing the output of `strace -f /usr/libexec/gnome-keyring-prompt` might also yield some more information, it could be possible that parameters need to be passed to that function.
Comment 23 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-08-26 16:53:02 UTC
Can you check with 3.8.x?
Comment 24 Julien Cabessut 2013-08-30 12:53:21 UTC

The problem has disappeared with libgcrypt 1.5.3 and kernel 3.8.13, at least on my laptop.
Comment 25 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-08-30 16:23:00 UTC
Will close for now, thanks for feedback
