So, I notice that my encryption subkey is due to expire in ... three days, and I generate a new one. Everything goes fine, and I upload the key to the keyserver, and it tells me it goes through just fine. At the moment, on my machine, the keys look like this: pub 1024D/02B573F6 2001-05-31 Chris Flipse <firstname.lastname@example.org> uid Chris Flipse <email@example.com> uid Chris Flipse <firstname.lastname@example.org> sub 1024g/10EFF6DA 2001-05-31 [expires: 2001-10-06] sub 1024g/6B45DAD7 2001-10-04 [expires: 2002-04-02] But, when I decide to check and make sure everything got exported alright, I get the following: wanderer:~ 321% gpg --recv-key 02B573F6 gpg: requesting key 02B573F6 from wwwkeys.us.pgp.net ... gpg: key 02B573F6: invalid subkey binding gpg: key 02B573F6: not changed gpg: key 02B573F6: already in trusted key table gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: unchanged: 1 wanderer:~ 322% So ... can anybody give me a hint on what that "invalid subkey binding" means? Is this a (known) bug? I'm running gnupg 1.06. I also, in trying to research this a bit, discovered that doing a search on my address at the pgp.net searches gives back a key other than the one I'm using. I *think* this was an old key that I lost in a hard drive crash ... There's no way for me to get that out of the database, is there? A revokation certificiate has not made itself apparent ... I think that floppy might have gotten reused by my roommate as a boot disk... thanks, - flip -- // [pgp] 1024D/02B573F6 [http] meteu.octoraro.org "I may make you feel, but I can't make you think." -- Jethro Tull, "Thick as a Brick"
