gpa: cannot sign keys
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
Same as bug #190928, trying to sign a key does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, with different failures, depending on how gpa is launched.
Steps to Reproduce:
Launch gpa from menu, try to sign a key, no result.
Launch gpa from shell, try to sign a kwy, an error requester appears,
telling, among something else, "General error".
No key is signed.
The key should be signed.
In case of seahorse, there was an incompatibility with gnupg 1.4.2,
it might be the same issue and since gpa 0.7.3 is out, maybe it
could be worth to try to update.
I made a test, I tried gpa 0.7.3 under cygwin in a win32 machine.
Same result, it cannot sign the keys, only that the problem is always
reported as "general error".
So, it seems to me this should be forwarded to the gpa developers.
gpa-0.7.2-2 build queue'd, and it WORKSFORME, so hopefully it will for you too.
