PGP on FreeBSD

After getting a job at PGP, I decided to figure out what it would take to get official PGP working on FreeBSD (they offer a Linux package, but nothing for FreeBSD). After a bunch of experimenting, I have the following notes:

Install the following:


Create a ~/.pgp or it will complain about"permission denied" in obscure ways You can use your existing gnupg keys, just copy them to the .pgp directory and change the extensions to .pkr and .skr for public and secret key accordingly. You may want to add /compat/linux/usr/bin to your PATH


Replacing a failed disk:

gmirror forget mirror/gm0
gmirror insert mirror/gm0

If you have a problem with penguins, you can use the DePenguinator   to take of this problem remotely.
