Description Roland Wolters 2010-07-02 23:29:00 UTC
Description of problem:
Curerntly gpgme is of version 1.1.8. This is heavily outdated, and currentl desktop encryption software like KDE's Kleopatra require at least a gpgme version equal or larger as 1.2.0. Without it, the S/MIME encryption does not work properly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Start Kleopatra, run self test, and you get a warning the gpgme is outdated and needs to be updated to properly contact the gpg-agent.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora and KDE.
2. Launch Kleopatra's self test.
3. Watch and sob.
Actual results:
Kleopatra cannot properly connect to gpg-agent.

Expected results:
It should work without a flaw.

Additional info:
GPGME is available in version 1.3.0 for over half a year. 1.2.0 is available for more than a year. There is no need to wait with the updates. Plus: cryptographic software should be handled with extra care, and updates should be done regularly to be on the safe side.

You sure Kleopatra's failed test(s) aren't just due to missing

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2010-07-02 23:54:41 UTC
In the meantime, I've prepped a gpgme-1.2.0 update, but will wait until after the holiday weekend to commit anything,
scratch build:

Hey Rex, no, I have everything installed:
$ rpm -qa|grep gnupg

Anyway, is there a *reason* why gpgme was kept on that old version?

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2010-07-03 00:52:29 UTC
no reason I'm aware of.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2010-07-13 21:09:26 UTC
