I have a signed 2.x key.
Now I want to switch to gnupg and want to sign my new created gnupg-key
with my pgp 2.x key because of the certifications of the 2.x.

I tried to sign it with pgp2 :

# pgp -ks noel -u noel .gnupg/pubring.gpg
Pretty Good Privacy(tm) 2.6.3ia - Public-key encryption for the masses.
(c) 1990-96 Philip Zimmermann, Phil's Pretty Good Software. 1996-03-04
International version - not for use in the USA. Does not use RSAREF.

Unsupported packet format - you need a newer version of PGP for this file.

Then I tried pgp5:

# pgp5 -ks noel -u noel .gnupg/pubring.gpg
Invoked with unknown symlink

( Dont know what this means ).

Maybe someone had the same problems and know the solution.
