Well, I've just tried to follow the hints that I've found in your home page
about gpg-pgp migration.

I've generated my own gpg key, then I've imported my public pgp5.0i key in
gpg (0.4.1) keyring, with a plain gpg --import.
Now gpg --list-keys reports the following:

sig        44444444 1997-09-03   [keybind]

Now I'm unable to do anything with key 4444444, I got the following error

gpg: using secondary key 99999999 instead of primary key 44444444
gpg: LID 35: error building sigs on the fly: g10err=134615971
gpg: key 99999999.35: trust check failed: g10err=134615971
gpg: 0x44444444: error checking key: g10err=134615971
gpg: [stdin]: encryption failed: g10err=134615971

Can someone explain me what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks in advance..

I'm using gpg 0.4.1 compiled under i386 redhat 5.1 (glibc2), and I've both
idea and rsa extensions loaded.
