Description Gene Czarcinski 2008-07-05 05:29:01 UTC
Description of problem:

bzr launchpad-login xxxx failes with:

pycurl.error: (60, 'Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with known CA

In Fedora 9, the python-pycurl package was added to the required for bzr.

If python-pycurl is not installed, bzr works but does not authenticate
launchpad's certificate.  The situation was also true in Fedora 8, but, with no
python-pycurl package, bzr worked.

Rather than using bzr, the situation/problem can be tested with:

python /usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/curl/

Using fails

Using works

When I first reported this to bzr bugs
another user claimed that the problem was fixed on debian by installing their
ca-certificates package:

This tells me that debian has the right CA cert but Fedora does not.

This is impacting my ability to use bsr since I must identify myself
(launchpad-login) to be able to "push" files up to launchpad.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 9, openssl-0.9.8g-9.fc9

How reproducible:

Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2008-07-05 13:51:19 UTC
I believe that I have some proof that the bzr problem with
 is a missing CA cert.  First, I installed "curl" to have a nice command line

1. run: curl --cacert /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
result: html

2. run: curl --cacert /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
result: curl: (60) Peer certificate cannot be authenticated ...
get new cacert.pem from
[curl website]
3. run: curl --cacert ./cacert
result: html

4. run: curl --cacert ./cacert
result: html ... looking good!
This proves something but I am not sure what because if I copy the new
cacert.pem into /etc/pki/tls/certs/ and try to use it from there, redhat works
but launchpad does not.

OK, one more test:  copy /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt to ./ [this is openssl's]

run curl --cacert ./ca-bundle.crt
result: html

I thought I had it but this now looks like it might be a problem with curl/libcurl.

I am going to open a problem with curl but will leave this one open for a while.

Anything helpful will be appreciated.

Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2008-07-05 19:29:35 UTC
This is looking more and more like libcurl so I am going to close this.

The real problem could still be something in openssl but it sure does not look
like it.  More info:
