gpgme test failure when run with gpg version 1
Closed, InvalidPublic


If you run the gpg test suite under version 1, you get:

./t-support.h:160: GPGME: Invalid crypto engine
FAIL: t-gpgconf

This does not happen if you use gpg2.

Presumably (since e.g. dirmngr tests are skipped under gpg1) the tests should work for both. Is there is a missing feature test for a crypto engine which is absent from gpg1? Perhaps this test should be skipped for gpg1?

Normal priority as this should be looked into but is not dramatic.

werner lowered the priority of this task from Normal to Low.
werner added a project: gnupg (gpg14).

Reconsidering this: Running the test suite with gpg1 is not a proper use case. gpg1 may be installed in addition to gpg but it should never be used on a build machine solely.
