Re: Bug#634930: gpa: GPA unusable due to "General Assuan error"

Dear gnupg/gpa developers,

There is some strange issue with gpa on a Debian users system. See

http://bugs.debian.org/634930

and the mail below. gpa has no debug switch. What do you suggest to
debug the issue?

Regards, Daniel

How did you find out?

Instead of removing this file can you please try the option:
--disable-x509 instead?

Is the second step really necessary?

It works locally without removing this file. [1] proves this too.

Hi,

I tried to replicate the problem with the current stable versions of GPA
0.9.2 and GPGME (well, my working copy).  I was not able to do that.  I
don't have a clean squeeze installation right now available thus I can't
check 0.9.0 easily.

Lionel, would you mind to run another test with GPA 0.9.2, GPGME 1.3.2,
and GnuPG 2.0.19 (or 2.1-beta).


Salam-Shalom,

   Werner

Sorry, Lionel, it was meant to be sent the other Lionel.

NOTE: The following packages are unofficial packaging work. We have an
outdated gpgme in Debian. I've built packages for the latest gpgme
release. However, if you install them, you probably need to downgrade
these packages after you've tested, how gpa behaves!

GPGME 1.3.2 packages built for unstable are here:
