Description Dirk Heinrichs 2005-01-07 02:34:25 UTC
Since a few days, the ebuilds for gnupg 1.9.x contain a configure option --disable-agent which disables building of gpg-agent. But OTOH, the gpg-agent ebuild depends on "<app-crypt/gnupg-1.9" since it was intended for gnupg stable users only.

So please remove this option from the gnupg-1.9.x ebuilds again, since emerging gpg-agent would downgrade gnupg.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-07 02:36:00 UTC
this is intensional so it doesn't conflict with gpg-agent.
Comment 2 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-07 02:37:35 UTC
fix bug #76992 and you won't need to worry. The last message on the gnupg-1.9 emerge says it isn't installed.
Comment 3 Dirk Heinrichs 2005-01-07 02:50:20 UTC
For comment #1: But as I wrote before: emerging gpg-agent would downgrade gnupg because of it's dependencies (it was intended for users of gnupg <1.9).

For comment #2: This has nothing to do with bug #76992 (which is the reason why I filed 2 bugs). The first one is a problem with the functionality of the package, this one is an ebuild problem).
Comment 4 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-07 03:02:47 UTC
#1 I have (just) removed the version numbers in the dependancy of gpg-agent - no probrem. Sorry for not reading fully.

#2 As #1 is fixed, I'd rather keep only one package providing gpg-agent and one other providing the user's preference of gnupg version. This way I don't need to worry about conflicts.

That sounds good to me.
