[root@buildserver:~]$ pear upgrade pear/Crypt_GPG requires PHP extension "posix" No valid packages found upgrade failed

Crypt_GPG has required posix since 0.7.0. Were you actively using Crypt_GPG with no warnings without the posix extension (which should be built by default)?

i was and i am using 1.2.0 the whole time without problems and posix-extension even on the highest error-reporting so "has required posix since 0.7.0" is simply wrong [root@buildserver:~]$ pear list | grep GPG Crypt_GPG 1.2.0 stable [root@buildserver:~]$ cat /etc/php.ini | grep error_reporting error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT [root@buildserver:~]$ autotest.php gnupg /Volumes/dune/buildserver/autotest/parts/gnupg.php OK: gnupg

Ok, I see if you use the homedir option, the posix functions are not called. I will make posix optional.

Hi gauthierm, I have tried installing Crypt_GPG-1.3.2 and it seems it still requires PHP extension "posix". Detailed error below: C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.4>php pyrus.phar install pear/Crypt_GPG Pyrus version 2.0.0a3 SHA-1: BE7EA9D171AE3873F1BBAF692EEE9165BB14BD5D Using PEAR installation found at C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.4 PEAR2\Pyrus\Installer\Exception: Dependency validation failed for some packages to install, installation aborted PEAR2\Pyrus\Dependency\Exception: can optionally use PHP extension "posix" PEAR2\Pyrus\Dependency\Exception: Cannot install on Win dows Please help. Thanks.

Richard, The last two lines explain what's going on: ... Crypt_GPG can optionally use PHP extension "posix" ... Cannot install on Windows Crypt-GPG is not supported on Windows because Windows doesn't have enough file descriptors. Crypt_GPG requires at least 5 file descriptors to securely pass information like passphrases and external signatures to the gnupg process. See
