    Default Backtrack3 ships with broken libgpgme?

    It seems that backtrack ships with broken libgpgme.

    When I was trying to build the OpenVAS lzm module for backtrack:
    openvas.org/openvas-bt.html

    I hit the bug in libgpgme library. I used same library version source and compiled myself and everything magically worked OK. More description and debugging info can be found on OpenVAS tracker:

    Here's more useful info

    and here's direct link to the bug description.

    My solution was to compile my own version of libgpgme from the source (same version as on the backtrack) and that fixed my problem.

    Can you say anything about the bug? What happened when you tried to build the lzm module for backtrack?

    I hit segfault (eg. Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.)

    Full gdb backtrace and other useful debugging info you can find on the links I provided (OpenVAS tracker).
