before you can install GnuPG you have to resolve all dependencies, that GnuPG needs to run. So your first step would be to install textutils. – user1146332 Sep 11 '12 at 14:22
is there anything which can install all with its dependencies as well – maxjackie Sep 11 '12 at 14:26
I'm not a Solaris guy but i heard about pkg-get sometime ago which downloads packages and automatically resolve dependencies. With this keyword i found this site tutorialgenius.blogspot.de/2012/03/…, that talks about package management on Solaris. Another interesting site is: opencsw.org/manual/for-administrators/getting-started.html – user1146332 Sep 11 '12 at 14:44
