I am using an internal toy svn server, and svn client seems to be configured to store passwords in gnome-keyring by default. How can I disable it or at least switch to kwallet?

I am using Debian Testing.

To disable gnome-keyring for one run of svn:


To disable gnome-keyring SSH support:

Untick/uncheck SSH Key Agent

To disable gnome-keyring completely:

vi /etc/pam.d/gdm  # or kdm
Delete the line

You may also want to change the value of the svn store-plaintext-passwords option.

See Subversion 1.6 Release Notes - Prompting before storing passwords in plaintext form for details.
