SVN checkout fails to authenticate

When running:

svn checkout https://mysvn.mydomain.com:8443/svn/Linux/trunk/scripts/ –username *** –password ‘****’

I got :

WARNING: gnome-keyring:: couldn’t connect to: /tmp/keyring-fTq763/pkcs11: No such file or directory
Password for ‘default’ GNOME keyring: *****
svn: OPTIONS of ‘https://mysvn.mydomain.com:8443/svn/Linux/trunk/scripts’: authorization failed: Could not authenticate to server: rejected Basic challenge (mysvn.mydomain.com:8443)

Problem could be damaged keyring or wrong keyring password.

To fix quickly :

pkill keyring

re-run the checkout.

Voila ! you get a new keyring and the process works. Checkout goes through.

Njoy 🙂

p.s.

As a desparate measure :

mv /usr/bin/mate-keyring-daemon /usr/bin/mate-keyring-daemon.rubbish
