Can you change the source from "" to ""? I'm constantly having issues connecting to their FTP.

gnupg in Core uses https now as well:

New version 1.4.20 is out. Change SHA1 to cbc9d960e3d8488c32675019a79fbfbf8680387e

As most users are likely not using this package exclusively with TOR I have not enabled those options by default. I have, however, added them to the PKGBUILD to make users aware of them. TOR users can easily edit the PKGBUILD before building.

Thanks for the info.

./configure \
--disable-dns-cert \
--disable-dns-pka \
--disable-dns-srv \

would eliminate DNS leaks

@geekinthesticks :

How ironic.

I am now getting:

Can you add armv6h to the list of supported architectures, so that this can be used on a Raspberry Pi?

Xyne commented on 2015-01-09 20:24

done, thanks!

evilgnome commented on 2015-01-07 07:45

I find that including


is now necessary for this to work.

jeffdik commented on 2015-01-03 02:03

@Xyne Oops, I had an out-of-date PKGBUILD. Sorry for the noise!

Xyne commented on 2014-12-28 14:18

The PKGBUILD already renames gnupg.7 to gnupg1.7 on line 45. Does that not work on your system?

jeffdik commented on 2014-12-28 00:58

I added
rename 'gnupg.7' 'gnupg1.7' "${pkgdir}"/usr/share/man/man7/gnupg.7
to the package function in PKGBUILD to get around the gnupg.7 conflict with core/gnupg.

eigengrau commented on 2014-11-25 13:10

«/usr/share/man/man7/gnupg.7.gz» now conflicts with core/gnupg.

grawity commented on 2014-09-03 07:03


Required by makepkg-git, so perhaps the GnuPG package should be one of the first to start including it :D

kornerr commented on 2014-08-28 15:09

The link to gnupg-1.4.18 is broken.
Correct one is right from the official web site:

Xyne commented on 2014-07-19 13:22

updated, thanks

You might want to add
since this is what's download page uses:
(and since the download link is non-https for an encryption program =P)

Xyne commented on 2012-11-10 03:00

Ok, updated to an HTTP mirror.
I didn't bump the release number because the resulting package is the same.

dlin commented on 2012-11-08 06:17

Sorry, that's not automatic, but, it is http based (friendly behind firewall)

dlin commented on 2012-11-08 06:15

I found a workable mirror here

Xyne commented on 2012-10-22 18:00

The current URL is the one that was in the package when I adopted it. If you find one that automatically redirects to a local mirror, I will update the PKGBUILD.

dlin commented on 2012-10-22 02:56

could you change the ftp to http ?
If possible, let it choose mirror automatically. (I'm not sure, if it is, there is one method).

Xyne commented on 2012-06-07 19:10

I don't understand how debootstrap can require anything from this package. The binaries have been renamed to avoid conflicts with the gnupg package. Nothing should expect or rely on them.

Anonymous comment on 2012-06-07 14:55

One problem occurred when I tried to use debootstrap, because it requires gpgv1 but gnupg1 installs /usr/bin/gpg1v.

Xyne commented on 2012-04-24 05:33

Ooops, I had fixed it locally but forgotten to upload it.
All pgp* binaries have been renamed pgp1*. Let me know if that causes any problems.

mtorromeo commented on 2012-04-23 07:35

There's a new conflict with core/gnupg on /usr/bin/gpgv
