Thank you very much, David.
Our other server is having 1.4.5 and to be consistent want to go from 1.2.6
Can I go ahead and update gnupg from 1.2.6 to 1.4.5 on "Red Hat Enterprise
Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 5)"? Is 1.4.5 compatible with this Linux
version? I did not find any information regarding this compatibility.
