Ah. This is probably a good time to back out. One of the other Daves
beat me to it, and far better than I would have done it and I've got
my VAT to do before I go to Tokyo.

I'll buy whoever _does_ do mine a beer or two at the next pm meeting
we're both at.

I did the random _text_ one. Anyone else want to take on the rest of Dave 
H's stuff as I took one over from Alex earlier this week.

2001-03-17 Thread Robin Szemeti

PGP that works with PGP::Sign ?? . .poxy things giving me grief ..

I'm using 7.0, and hating it.  I should never have upgraded.

I found some gpg binaries on fr.rpmfind.net which work just fine for
everything I've had to do so far.

 I'm using 7.0, and hating it.  I should never have upgraded.

I am beginning to wonder whether we should have gone that route on the
swerver .. bu still.. too late now.

 I found some gpg binaries on fr.rpmfind.net which work just fine for
 everything I've had to do so far.

I haven't considered the GPG option yet .. its going to be for a user
thing .. and PGP is more common .. I am right in thinking that GPG and
PGP are basically different and not interchangeable aren't I ? .. Itried
importing PGP keyfile into GOG and it didn;t like it.

binaries of PGP appear to work for most things .. but when I try to use
PGP::Sign it bombs. The problem is that PGP::Sign use open(3) to start PGP
in batch mode and pass it file handles. But it wont work under dedrat 7
.. trying to build PGP from sources under dedrat 7.0 reveals errors in the
compile relating to the filehandles, specifically the file offset
pointers. infact: PGPFileOffset is a long int, but it tries to assign it
to a struct  that is something else .. the result is not pretty.

If all else fails I'll jsut use GPG .. which will be a pain as Kmail (my
mailer) works nicely with PGP .. but not GPG as yet .. hmmmph

6.5.8i would be my choice if I could get it to work

What I'm really hating is the stuff that broke when I upgraded from 6.2.
Mainly X font stuff, and I rally can't be bothered to dig through the
gazillion different places that X puts stuff so I can fix it.  I'm still
toying with the idea of switching to Debian.  I run Debian on a couple of
my boxes, but I'm not as comfortable with it as I am with Deadrat, and
I know that it'll be a lot of work to switch the machine from one
distro to another without losing anything important.

They are interoperable but not compatible, if you see what I mean.

No.

Itried
importing PGP keyfile into GOG and it didn;t like it.

Was it a PGP v2.x keyfile? v5.x and v6.x should (for the most part) work
reasonably well. That is rather the point of GPG.

If all else fails I'll jsut use GPG .. which will be a pain as Kmail (my
mailer) works nicely with PGP .. but not GPG as yet .. hmmmph

Search for pgpgpg; it's a wrapper to solve this problem.

I have recently gone from RH to Debian, and I'm wondering why I didn't
sooner.  RedHat has a glittery Solaris-esque install, but vanilla installs
need too much work (another similarity with Solaris who made half of
/usr/bin friggin' setuid root).  RedHat also irritated me greatly with the
changes in RPM and their neglect of the SPARC disributions, so I decided to
play with Debian (which has a philosophy closer to mine).  I can tell you
already that dselect is a wonderful utility, and dpkg appears to be better
than rpm (at least for my purposes).  If you do move, keep in mind that
unstable means unstable.

... and Debian even does the SysV boot sequence, now.
