Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10095
Problem generating keys w/ gnupg-1.0.0-1
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
I assume what is listed in bugzilla as "gpgp" is gnupg, if I'm wrong please
tell me where to properly submit this bug.
When I run "gpg --gen-key", attempting to enter a user ID fails with the
message "Invalid character in name" no matter what I type. Even copying &
pasting the example "Heinrich Heine (Der Dichter)
The message is a bit ambiguous. GnuPG prompts for the information in
three pieces: the real name ("Heinrich Heine"), an email address
("firstname.lastname@example.org"), and a comment ("(Der Dichter)"). If you
enter them separately, and you still get this error, please reopen this bug.
