As mentioned only several posts before, there is a faq on this.
Have a look at www.gnupg.org ->documentation
In short form: remove the passphrase from your secret key in PGP,
export it with PGP, import it with gnupg, set your passphrases back.
Be !very! careful with the exported secret key since its not
protected by anything. Wipe it after the procedure. Don't do this in
an unsafe enviroment.

I tried to import my old pgp key to my secret-keyring.
How can I do this?
The option --secret-keyring secring.skr doesn't seem to work.
It causes me to type a message, not doing anything else.
Is there anything I forgot?
I'd like to use this old key, just for decripting old Mails.
