as i have been in your shoes only a week ago, i will let aside this ignorant and dumb question of yours as one of a naiive soul in desperate need 4 help, and even go out of my own way to even answer it: i got my copy of "idea.c" and "rsa.c" (and even "rsaref.c") at the very gnupg site, where they lay plain in the open. download and read the source. stop and copy where it says "gcc -fPIC -shared -O2 <src>.c" and do so. this simple statement will compile the files to generate position independant code (PIC) suitable for use as shared objects. then edit your .gnupg/options to read "load-extension rsa" or "load-extension idea", copy the output of the compile runs ("idea" and "rsa") to "/usr/local/lib/gnupg/". after that, "gpg --version" will show you the light! - -- -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: PGPfreeware 5.0i for non-commercial use Charset: noconv iQA/AwUBOQTVgtRoW4hIlMSDEQJ0kwCfTGhLEJ1Q7GmK8YCpmvEzjxoo7TAAoOil RfMizhZhw6MCX9xASWXibHNE =IzlU -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
