I'm using Sabayon 10 with Gnome 3. The problem is Gnome crashes and restarts when I try to create new Password Keyring.

Passwords and Keys > + > Password Keyring > 'typing name & passwords' > CRASH

I cannot create that so can't log on to online accounts. The OS is clean, installed yesterday, no more desktops on it, but Fluxbox.

Do you have any ideas how to fix it?

--- EDIT ---

Using MATE I see Can't communicate with gnome-keyring-daemon.

I'm quite new in linuxes and don't know how to do that yet – Kobra Nov 12 '12 at 20:07
try this wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GNOME_Keyring#Use_Without_GNOME sorry for late reply – harish.venkat Nov 21 '12 at 17:20

It´s probably a bug in GNOME keyring. You should file a bug report in your distro bug tracker.

Even if he is doing something wrong, applications should not just crash. +1 to file a bug report. Details on providing a good bug report would improve the answer though. – jordanm Nov 12 '12 at 20:07
