Slackware64-current GPG Bug
 
There seems to be a bug in Slackware64-current gpa package that doesn't let the file manager to open to encrypt/decrypt some files.

Open gpa and click FIle manager at the above menu there I suddenly get a Segmentation Fault and the application closes immediately.

On the other hand, there are lots of certificates which I have never added and don't even know where they came from which can also cannot be deleted with an error says 'GPGME library returned an error and the error was ; No Public key'. This doesn't even make sense, this is a clean install.

Anyone can confirm this ?

Unidentified certificates I mentioned turned out to be X.509 root certificates. Running with "gpa --disable-x509" solves the listing issue of these unwanted certificates. But on the other hand file manager still crashes, waiting for inputs to get over this...

upgrade it to 0.9.3 using the slackbuild.

P.S. (If Pat read this) there are some occurrences of PRGNAM in the slackbuild, instead of PKGNAM ;)

0.9.3 did the trick, thanks. However it would be good to understand the exact problem causing the segfault.

If you're curious, you can rebuild 0.9.2 with debug symbols on, avoid the stripping of the binary and investigate with gdb. Personally I don't care that much.

I simply tried the upgrade and worked, one problem less.

EDIT: I made an small effort (but you can do that too ;) ) and read the ChangeLog :D

        Fix a segmentation fault opening file-manager mode.
        * src/fileman.c (file_list_new): s/select/sel, which is undefined.

sorry t35t, re-reading my answer,it seems to me that I might have sounded a little harsh, but it was not my intention: it's just that I'm very busy ATM so I'm starting to hurry on things (but I shouldn't).
