slackpkg gpg problems


I have gnupg installed, yet slackpkg always claims it cannot be found and thus gpg verification fails on packages.

Do I have to do anything special to get slackpkg to use gnupg?


I have tried reinstalling/updating from solutions in other threads, but they did not work for me.

Did you try reinstalling slackpkg?

Code:
# slackpkg reinstall slackpkg

Check that your time and date are correct.

Also make sure you don't have a slackpkg.conf.new that might need putting in it's correct place.

Is slackpkg pointing towards a 64 bit mirror?

There is also a gnupg-1.4.10

You should have that installed too.

Yes, pointing towards the correct mirror.


Why do I need both versions of gnupg. Is that not redundant?
