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.

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'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.
AIXTOOLS / What your goals are

  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

Thanks for the update. I was concerned!

p.s. I am "repackaging" - soon - in a way to make it possible to have multiple versions of python installed (actually, already started, but not for Python 3.7 yet.
I will also do the very very last version of python2.7 in this way as well - and using this new LPP name scheme.

aixtools.python.pyXY - where X is major and Y is minor (import sys; x,y = sys.version_info[:2])
Yes. Correct. I too tried in two more AIX servers.. I did not see that message.

Thanks for the clarification.
I am surprised, to say the least. As far as I can tell, the IP address it is looking for/at is an IBM owned address (see - so nslookup does not work for me.
Is is possible that you had something else running in the background that might have sent this message?
I know the installp process quite well - at that point in the process installp is starting the "restorebyfilename" process. Installp does not need any network connectivity.
I would consider running installp again - maybe add the -F option (to force reinstall) - and prefix it with "nohup".
If you used smit - double check smit.log - it would have the stdout and stderr merged, irrc.

For 7.2, is not supposed to matter.
Not sure how long I'll be able to support AIX 5.3, but I'll keep trying.
Hi Michael,

Thanks for the quick response.

I did not run any test.

while doing package installation. I am seeing that message as part of package installation. Please see in below output.
