Description Christian Stadelmann 2017-11-23 23:46:16 UTC
Description of problem:
This package is pulling in gnupg 1.x, which is not needed any more on modern workstations. Can you please port the tool to gnupg2, accept either of both versions or drop the dependency at all?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
volume_key-libs-0.3.9-15.fc27.x86_64

Comment 1 Miloslav Trmač 2017-11-25 14:27:59 UTC
I’m afraid it’s not that simple because gpgme apparently still can’t automatically submit passphrases to gpg2 (bug #637902, bug #842074).

After (./configure GPG=/usr/bin/gpg2) the test suite fails.

Comment 3 Patrick Uiterwijk 2018-05-09 17:14:43 UTC
So, this is actually fixed in GnuPG2, but with custom work, if you call gpg2 with --pinentry-mode=loopback, it will allow bypassing of pinentry programs.
That *might* work with some integration libraries that have made to work with it.

If you use pinentry-mode=loopback, you can then either wait for the passphrase prompt on the stdio of gpg (or just send it after an EOF of the normal input), or use the --passphrase-fd, --passphrase-file* or --passphrase* options to pass it in.

*: PLEASE do not use these if at all avoidable..... These are terrible ideas for any production system and would result in the passphrase being either in a plain file or in the process list.
