| Hi!
| I am trying to upgrade my GnuPG from 1.0.7-6 to 1.2.2. I am running
RedHat 8.0. I follow the instructions completely (./configure, make,
make install), and everything seems to go through smoothly. But once I
check out the version of my gpg, it is still 1.0.7-6. Am I doing
anything wrong?
| I attempted to rpm -e the old version, but RH tells me that it is
needed by up2date. I attempted to uninstall up2date, and RH tells me
that it is needed by up2date-genome, firstboot, and that
/usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT is needed by (installed) rhn-applet. So I
erased all those packages, including the 1.0.7-6 version.
| I attempted to install 1.2.2, and it went through the whole
installation just fine. At least, it looked like it did. Because when I
checked to see what version of gpg I have, it is now showing that I do
not have any installed!
| Any suggestions?
| Thanks,
| Ty

Why  not get the rpm from the mirror


and install that?  That is what I did to get 1.2.2 in RH8.  Then  you
can do a

rpm -Uvh gnupg

And not worry a second further!
