10.9.1: GPG Suite Installer hangs

Downloaded the installer version from below link :

Following disucssion from here :


Please describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible.

This is my first GPGMail upgrade since I upgraded the OSX to 10.9

GPGMail 2.1 (ead3554) is currently the newest version available.

The installer has hung but while its still to finish I opened the mail and seems like the GPGMail is active. I killed the installer process
Mail Version 7.1 (1827)

    Following issues are observed :

    1. The gpg-agent process is hogging the CPU.
    2. the GPG KeyChain Access doesn't find any of my previous keys (private/public) . probably they are miss-placed . looks like a config issue.
    3. seems like the ~/.gnupg directory/file hierarchy is broken .

    jaydesh9@Jays-Mac:.gnupg$ ls
    ===== /Users/jaydesh9/.gnupg ===== S.gpg-agent= gpg.conf pubring.gpg secring.gpg
    gnupg/ gpg.conf.new pubring.gpg~ trustdb.gpg
    gpg-agent.conf private-keys-v1.d/ random_seed
    jaydesh9@Jays-Mac:.gnupg$ ls gnupg/
    ===== /Users/jaydesh9/.gnupg ===== gpg.conf pubring.gpg pubring.gpg~ secring.gpg trustdb.gpg

    This may be the issue causing #2

    sorry for the trouble, this dosn't sound too pleasant. What happens if you run the stable release form our homepage instead of the nightly? Does that installer then work ok?

    Best, steve
