Installing GnuPG on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow LeopardEdit


$ curl -O
$ openssl sha1 gnupg-1.4.9.tar.bz2
SHA1(gnupg-1.4.9.tar.bz2)= 826f4bef1effce61c3799c8f7d3cc8313b340b55
$ tar xjvf gnupg-1.4.9.tar.bz2
$ cd gnupg-1.4.9
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make check
$ sudo make install

Note: The above for me worked on a relatively old iMac (first of the Intel-powered ones) which runs in 32-bit mode. Comments indicate that newer machines which run in 64-bit mode may require ./configure --disable-asm instead of just plain ./configure.


Seeing as I had a working GnuPG install on my old Leopard volume, I just copied over my ~/.gnupg folder to the new Snow Leopard install:

$ cp -R /Volumes/Clon/Users/wincent/.gnupg ~
