gnupg's pinentry fails at console
« on: April 05, 2017, 10:55:30 AM »
Hi all.
I've got gnupg and all required libraries compiled for armv6 and running under piCore 8.

I'm getting strange behavior out of pinentry (helper program for secure text entry) in that it fails at the console with strange errors (end of file, permission denied).
When set to pinentry-tty I get the end of file error and when using (n)curses I get the permission denied error.

It does, however, work when I launch under screen, ssh, or when running bash.
I am wondering if something in the default busybox shell's environment is not configured properly but I'm not really sure how to run it down and debug it.
Any suggestions as to how to figure out the problem?

Also, I have tczs for libraries and binaries built.
I'm willing to contribute them to the repo but I've never done it before and am unfamiliar with the process.
Who do I contact or how do I go about that?

Thanks!
