I’ve checked the man pages and several forums posts which advise to use the –batch argument with –gen-key. The command create the pubring.kbx file but then the terminal hangs until I cancel it. I was wondering if anyone had got this far/and if they had managed to get this to work? UPDATE: If I disconnect the pkgrepo account and then run the command as root it works – I can bypass the passphrase prompt. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
