According to all documentation I could find, and animated conversation with those directly involved with the gnupg project, the commands needed are as follows:
Code: [Select]
Not a typo. Seriously, "do nothing" was the only answer offered, and it was repeatedly reiterated. And yes, that's when transition from 1.4/2.0 to "modern" 2.1/2.2 was included.

I don't buy it, either. But just copy ~/.gnupg over and see if it "just works". When it doesn't, you can try posting back. The gpg and libgcrypt versions reported by gpg --version might help, but I doubt it.

It's very seriously scary to have so much data locked in for so many users with so little documentation available, most of what's there wrong, and most of all so little sense, or, frankly, ability exhibited by the GnuPG project. None of this would have become an issue at all if they knew what versioning or planning are at all, or at least had a vague idea of what "upgrade path" might mean.

Hope it works as advertised for you, because after that there is only straight-up guesswork and trial-and-error. Nothing else is available.

Web search indicates that GnuPG enforces private ownership of the folder and some files for security reasons:

I installed this last night on my Gateway netbook.  It runs flawlessly, naturally, and the computer feels like a new machine.  Good job.

Running actually on VL7-light. Would like to upgrade to 7.1 or 7.2 but both installs don't find my nic, a Qualcomm Atheros Communications Device 1091 which uses the alx module. In VL7 this driver was in /lib/modules/3.0.17/updates/drivers/net/ethernet/atheros/alx but has gone missing from 7.1 and 7.2.
I have tried compiling the driver from compat-drivers-2013-03-04-u.tar.bz2 as recommended, but I get make errors. Would be grateful for any hints.

What kind of make errors are you getting?

Posting them may help us resolve the problem.

Installed kernel-src-3.18.16-x86-1vl71 on clean VL7.1 light as source files for 7.2 are not available.

Kernel source (kernel4.4-src) is available for 7.2, but somehow it ended up in the "Fonts" folder in the repo. ???

However, I tried this build on an up-to-date 7.2 install and got the same result as you. Hopefully another dev will see this and dig into it.

Is there a reason you guys are downgrading the kernel for this? Has anyone tried it on the shipped kernel?

My admittedly brief test was done in a vm using the shipping kernel.

I tried on VL 7.1 because I couldn't find newer source files. My experience of kernels and modules is virtually inexistant but here's what I tried today.

Downloaded kernel4.4-stripped-src-4.4.107-x86-1vl72.txz. Installed VL 7.2 light.

Because I haven't Gslapt

installpkg kernel4.4-stripped-src-4.4.107-x86-1vl72.txz

Got a few errors concerning symlinks in arch presumably because the sources aren't complete. Remade symlinks between /lib/modules and /usr/source

Ran driver-select alx, and make

Ok, I think i'm confused.

Can you post the output of 'cat /etc/vector-version' and 'uname -a' please?

There is a discrepancy between your kernel version and the src pkg (4.4.76 vs. 4.4.107).
Try pkg: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.2/extra/Fonts/kernel4.4-src-4.4.76-x86-1vl72.txz

Side note: with an i7 system, I would choose the 64 bit version.  ;)
