Do these new native RPM packages for RHEL8 still require the Remi repository? This other thread hinted that it might soon be the case:

Poll: Which Linux distribution of the Red Hat family should we support with a native package?

Our company is part of a highly regulated industry, and our security policy requires us to use commercially supported software wherever possible. While I think that Remi is doing a great job with his repository, it unfortunately does not fall into that category. We had enough problems getting an exception for EPEL…

Kind regards,

Hi @jreut

Thank you for your feedback.

passbolt use gnupg PHP extension (PECL / Github project) and unfortunately this extension is not provided as a php package in RHEL distribution and its clones (Rocky, Alma, etc.).

There is 2 ways to install this PHP extension:

  • pecl install gnupg: This is not a RHEL trusted source and you need to install building tools such as make, gcc, etc. It is not ideal and recommended to install build tools on a production server.
  • Build a php-gnupg RPM package.

You thought first build php-gnupg RPM package ourselves, but as we used Remi’s rpm spec sources, and as he is a well known and trusted PHP maintainer in RPM world, we decided to rely on his repository for the gnupg php extension.

If you really need a php gnupg package provided by passbolt, to avoid the use of Remi’s repository, it is maybe something we can consider. You can contact us at to discuss more about that.

With best regards,
