What your goals are

(1/2) > >>

  First off, thank you for the effort and what you've accomplished with rootvg and aixtools.

I'm having a problem with your gnupg package, as it installs, but fails to run, this will lead to using perzl's distribution, and leads me into RPM hell.

Reading your webpage, I found this paragraph under history:

AIXTOOLS began simply - porting Apache/ASF httpd and PHP tools needed to host the portal. Now I am trying to provide an alternate repository for packages not in the original AIX ToolBox and/or from other sources such as Perzl's RPM repository.

My question being around what you're goal is NOW...
you say you're NOT looking to provide alternative packaging for packages found on Perzl's repository.

gnupg is found on perzl, so do I skip asking for support with your installp version here?
While I know this is a hobby for you, I'm disappointed, if I'm reading this properly.  I really prefer installp than dealing with RPMs


I'll look into this asap - I am on vacation, so it may be a few days, rather than right away.
There is a chance the 'dependency' gnupg still has - something that once was unavoidable - is gettext and libiconv - but, a) I am a bit smarter and b) the tests for libiconv have become less strict, so - clearly time to redo/review gnupg.

p.s. I just installed the existing package aixtools.gnupg - and ran gpg --gen-key, that seems to work.
What is not working - so I can test - and I'll repackage at the latest 1.4 level (1.4.23).

I get this result:
# gpg --help

Yes. My old issues with packaging - and it seems I have it already installed on my other server.
This comes with: - which also depends on
I say "old" because when I last packaged gnupg there were many tricks I did not know - e.g., how to let a package know it has dependencies such as these.
