I found my old PGP key today. I haven’t used it in quite some time. But there it was, on my Windows machine: secring.skr

I use Thunderbird on FreeBSD, under KDE. I see I need to install mail/enigmail if I want to use PGP (well, the GnuPG implementation of PGP).

This appears to be my slippery slope.

First, I encountered this:

OK, let’s install lang/gcc44 and see where that goes. :)

After that, I’ll have to learn how, and if, my old key can be used with this new setup. I have been using it under Windows with Pegasus.
