pinentry-curses crashes with SIGSEGV if can't find terminfo
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I've been creating initrd with gnupg and pinentry-curses inside. While doing
that I've found that pinentry-curses crashes if it can't find terminfo.
Additional information here (Gentoo bugzilla):
My guess is that it shouldn't just crash with SIGSEGV but should exit telling
something like "error: can't find terminfo".

Fixed with commit 726c005 for 0.9.2.

You will now get an gpg-error codes like ENOENT, ENOTTY and GPG_ERR_TOO_SHORT
and not always GPG_ERR_CANCELED. I was not able to replicate a crash but that
might have been fixed in an earlier version.
