Strange. I work myself with kernel 2.0.38, gcc and and those modules work on my system with gpg 1.0.2. So I doubt your system as far as you described it is the problem. Where did you place those modules? I never used gpg 1.0.1, but I noticed that when I upgraded from 1.0.0 to 1.0.2 I had to put them in another directory, they curently reside in /usr/local/lib/gnupg/lib/gnupg/idea and /usr/local/lib/gnupg/lib/gnupg/rsa. All have ownership root.root and chmod 755. -- ir. J.C.A.
