libgcrypt warning from gpgv
Last modified: 2017-09-22 09:15:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Syslog contains, at 3 hourly intervals:
gpgv: Libgcrypt warning: missing initialization - please fix the application
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not reproducible with a simple run of gpgv on a signed file, strangely
Steps to Reproduce:
I don't know what's running gpgv, but guess it's rhnsd as are there isn't
another daemon or cron job that's a likely candidate.
Can you please report the issue through the regular support channels (http://www.redhat.com/support/), so it is properly investigated and prioritized?
We have an academic contract entitlement only to patches, not support, I'm told.
I was just reporting in the hope of being useful.
OK, thank you
