Description Tomas Hoger 2011-08-30 12:27:38 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #521902 +++

Description of problem:
kdelibs (and kdelibs3) ship own bundle of trusted CA certificates (ca-bundle.crt, stored in /usr/share/kde4/apps/kssl and /usr/share/apps/kssl respectively).  Fedora already contains a separate package containing such bundle expected to be used for general web surfing (just like kdelibs' bundle) - ca-certificates package (bundle was previously provided by openssl).

Have you considered using bundle from ca-certificates instead of the one shipped with KDE sources?  Doing some search on the internet, people seem to expect "system" (i.e. ca-certificates') bundle to be use by default, even more now that KDE4's SSL management GUI is incomplete:

This has been in Fedora for around 9 months already.  If there were not issues reported in Fedora, we should consider this for RHEL-6 too.
