gpg does not work with default non-root mlock settings
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:46:59 EDT
By default, we permit non-root mlock of up to 4k.
gpg tries to lock 32k, and fails.
We could either:
a) try to fix gpg to work with 4k
b) bump the limit in /etc/security/limits.conf
The limit should probably be bumped to 32kB, in /etc/security/limits.conf
That way we can:
1) test the mlock patch better
2) see if there are issues with eg. sshd not obeying the limits in
kernel defaults to 32k btw
And, it actually works now.
