Description Gene Czarcinski 2008-07-04 23:27:13 UTC
Description of problem:
Ref: upstream bug:

The fix to upstream bug #230223 has an undesirable feature .. it breaks
launchpad-login because there is no CA Certificate on the Fedora 9 system for
lauchpad's certificate.

launchpad-login does not fail on Fedora 8 because python-pycurl is not
installed.  I can circumvent the problem by uninstalling (--nodeps)
python-pycurl on the Fedora 9 system but this is really a very temporary solution.

Lokk at my upstream bug report.  Apparently, debia has a "ca-certificates"
package which contains certificates for common CAs.  What is the solution for

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 9, bzr-1.5

How reproducible:

Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2008-07-04 23:39:39 UTC
Suggestion:  Create a new Fedora rpm which has commonly used ca-certificates
like debian does:

Given that debian has done all the work, this should be a simple solution to

Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2008-07-05 00:02:13 UTC
I attempted to use the ca-certificates rpm from F10 development  but it
conflicts with openssl on F9.  This ca-certificates rpm needs to be re-done for F9.

Comment 3 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2008-07-05 00:14:58 UTC
This is a bazaar bug.  Will add more information on the upstream bug.  If you'd
like to have ca-certificates backported to F9, please open a new bug against
that package to see what the maintainer thinks.

Comment 4 Gene Czarcinski 2008-07-05 04:04:01 UTC
I believe there is no need for the backport ... I beleive that openssl in Fedora
8/9 already provide the CA Certs in /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt

The question is, how does whatever is checking the CA cert know to look there?
[debian has a different location]

more over at bzr

Comment 5 Gene Czarcinski 2008-07-05 04:30:40 UTC
Q: When you added the requirement for pycurl to the bzr package, did you do any
testing to see if lp-login worked?

Comment 6 Gene Czarcinski 2008-07-05 04:59:17 UTC
The message is from the curl (libcurl) package.

I believe that the problem is that launchpad's CA cert is missing but I am going
to close this report.

I am not sure if the fix is to backport the ca-certificates package or fix
openssl on Fedora 9.
