Description Jeremy Katz 2008-02-11 21:41:47 EST
gpgme is now being used in yum for tying a key to a specific repository.  Thus,
it's being pulled into the live images.  Requiring both gnupg *and* gnupg2 seems
kind of overkill...
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-02-11 23:09:44 EST
I'll have to double-check.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-02-12 17:12:40 EST
Here's at least part of the scoop, in order for various parts of gpgme to work,
it needs:
  * OpenPGP protocol support (/usr/bin/gnupg)
  * CMS (Cryptographic Message Sytax) protocol support (via /usr/bin/gpgsm)
  * /usr/bin/gpg-agent

So, strictly speaking, gpgme doesn't *need* either of them.  :)

What do you think?

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-02-12 17:21:08 EST
/usr/bin/gpg2 should be usable for openpgp afaict.  And then only one version of
gnupg would have to be installed
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-02-12 17:39:06 EST
sounds like you're advocating dropping
Requires: gnupg
then?  I'm willing to try it out, and seeing what breaks. :)
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2008-02-12 17:45:51 EST
Yeah, it looks like it should be fine from some looking.  Might need to pass
--with-gnupg=/usr/bin/gpg2 to configure
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-02-17 17:01:54 EST
On the surface, there may be some issues:

I'll contact upstream to verify, it could be that some of the tests performed by
'make check' may be gnupg(1)-specific, and not indicative of problems beyond that.
Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2008-02-28 12:43:28 EST
Yeah, we were just looking at this here at BU. You can't use
--with-gnupg=/usr/bin/gpg2 because there's a point (in just "make", not "make
check", even) where it wants to do this:

/usr/bin/gpg --homedir . --allow-secret-key-import \
                --import Alpha/Secret.gpg Zulu/Secret.gpg

and, from the gpg2 man page:

              This is an obsolete option and is not used anywhere.

(Thanks, gpg2 man page! So helpful.)

So it won't work.
Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2008-02-29 21:35:25 EST
added configure option --disable-gpg-tests since many of them were gpg(1)-specific.
