The upgpverify package
This document describes how to download, compile, test and install upgpverify.
The upgpverify package is meant to run under UNIX and -lookalikes.
$ mkdir /package $ chmod 1755 /package $ cd /package
You may use another directory. No program in the upgpverify package cares where it is installed. /package is recommended.
You can alternatively download it through FTP:
$ gunzip upgpverify-0.3.8.tar.gz $ tar -xpf upgpverify-0.3.8.tar $ rm upgpverify-0.3.8.tar $ cd mail/upgpverify-0.3.8
By default the binaries are installed in
/package/ by the directory where you you unpacked the
upgpverify distribution in). Symbolic links to the commands
are created in /command/ and, for compatibility
reasons, in /usr/local/bin.
Manual pages are installed in /package/upgpverify-0.3.8/doc. Symbolic links to the manual pages are created under /usr/local/man.
If you don't like this then:
$ package/compile && package/check $ cp command/* /whereever/you/want/bin $ cp doc/* /whereever/you/want/doc
compile/install (or compile/check) tries to run some automated tests if gpg, pgp2 and / or pgp5 are available. If these tests fail the software will not be install. If some or all of the needed programs are not found in $PATH then upgpverify will be installed.
The pgp binary is expected to run pgp version 2, and the pgp5 command is expected to run pgp version 5.
$ mail email@example.com <compile/systype
Please do not send this email if the self-check failed. Send an problem report to the mailing list instead.
If you are short on disk space you may remove the compile and src directories:
$ rm -rf compile src
