The problem is, my original key was made with pgp 5.0, which though an RSA key,
was not viewable by 2.6.3 (it complained about newer version key), so I made a
new key with 2.6.3. I can use now the debian tools, but I had to add the new key
to the public servers (how do I remove the old one from the public servers?)
and now I cannot read encrypted messages from some friends of mine that had DSS
keys. Oh, well, I cannot have it all.
