http://forums.fedoraforum.org – How do I change my default keyring password in F11? The instructions from here no longer work: Code: $ yum search gnome-keyring-manager Loaded plugins: dellsysidplugin2, fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit Warning: No matches found for: gnome-keyring-manager No Matches found Longer story: Somehow I got my keyring and login passwords out of sync. I went to change my login password using passwd on the terminal. I meant to change it to (let's say) "abcdef" but typed "abcdfe" twice. Realizing my mistake I tried to used passwd a second time to change it to "abcdef", but passwd complained that the new password was too similar to the old. So I used "su -c 'passwd myusername'" - I was able to change my login password but I guess this did not update my keyring password. I've tried changing my password using passwd as myself (not root) to something completelydifferent, but my keyring password remains the first password (e.g. "abcdfe"). (HowTos)
