Libgcrypt is a general purpose cryptographic library based on the code
from GnuPG. It provides functions for all cryptographic building
blocks: symmetric ciphers, hash algorithms, MACs, public key
algorithms, large integer functions, random numbers and a lot of
Libgpg-error is helper library used by a couple of other projects to
provide a common set of error codes and descriptions.
I haven't done any deep testing. I'm happy that lddd didn't report any
broken linking. I took these packages just to prevent that they are not
orphaned. If we have somebody who knows them better tell me.
For my system:
[root at workstation64 andyrtr]# env LANG=C pacman -Qi libgpg-error libgcrypt | grep Required
Required By : dirmngr gpgme libgcrypt libksba
Required By : cryptsetup dirmngr gnupg2 libnetworkmanager libxslt
Test any of these packages and tell me if you find something broken.
