Hi all,

Quick question, hope you can help; does PoL bypass the issues surrounding Wine on all Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit distro's which suffer the Gnome-Keyring PK11 kit issues? (Sorry for the lack of the exact message there but I don't have Wine currently installed but am wondering if I need to drop to a 32-bit 'buntu flavour to make things work...

Hi,

Not as far as I know, I think the message you're referring to can be seen quite often:

p11-kit: couldn't load module: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: Ne peut ouvrir le fichier d'objet


But what are its consequences? I thought it was just something used to deal with cryptography acceleration cards and had no consequence for >99.9% of computers.

That's the one, and thank you for your answer.

From what I've researched it seems to be anything requiring encrypted communications, so anything SSL based and suchlike. To be honest I don't know "all" of the implications, but it's quite possible that "that" is the reason certain game updaters etc won't work / multiplayer banning etc.

To be honest I haven't tried going much further than that because I'm not aware of the full impact; last thing I want to do is install a load of games only to find they don't work due to an error message I simply ignored :) So if it's generally not a problem maybe I should just try it.... novel idea :)

That said I'm tempted to move from 'buntu to something like Suse, but I believe most other distro's have problem running Steam native at the moment, so i'm a bit stuck...

That's funny, because I think it has just been fixed (like "16 minutes ago" when I opened the page): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-keyring/+bug/859600

And yes, I know about Invader (another crazy french guy ;) ), but didn't know he had an official website, thanks!
