In our recent project, we made use of gpg1.4.3 for encryption/decryption purposes.
In dev/test environment, everything worked fine. Installation of gpg on
production host is also successful. Dev/Test/ is "5.8 Generic_108528-24 sun4u
sparc SUNW,Ultra-4" & Prod is "5.8 Generic_117350-38 sun4u sparc
When we tried to encrypt a file in production, it gave an error /dev/random not
found. Indeed the file is not there in production environment and because of
which we had a rollback for the release.
But I would like to know the list of all such mandatory runtime dependancies
that gpg requires. Is there any literature on web that details this? If so,
could you please provide the link? Are there any other patches/libraries that
need to installed on production for successful operation? Any help in this
regard is very highly appreciated.
