I just updated my f15 system to yesterday's updates (08.iii.2011), those
including kernel-2.6.38-0.rc8.git0.1.fc15 &c.
I rebooted the machine, as I wanted to run the new kernel.
When kdm logged me in, I saw 2 keys with a red 'x' in the system tray. Hovering
over it shows "Your credentials have expired" and when I clicked it, an empty
window appeared, and after a long, long delay, it filled in with the following
Couldn't acquire kerberos ticket: 'Cannot resolve network address for KDC in
What is this and why is it appearing? I don't know what kerberos is and I don't
think I have used it in 12 years of linuxing.
What do I do about it to fix it?
