I am a newbie, and have made a very big mistake.
I generated a key with a bad password, and a smaller key space than I
wished. I generated a new key with a far superior password and keyspace,
however, I am unable to delete my old keys. I have not sent any emails or
encrypted any data with any key as of yet. I am using GPG 1.0.4 on Redhat
I invoke 'gpg --edit-key redmist', and get the 'Command>' prompt.
Secret key is available.
pub 1024D/2CE3B90A created: 2001-02-21 expires: never trust: -/u
(1) redmist <email@example.com>
I issue the command 'key 1', and it returns, "Command> key 1 No secondary
key with index 1". I have tried 'toggle'ing the keys, 'delkey', 'delkey
redmist', and every combination of commands and UIDs that you can think
of. This is what my key listing looks like:
pub 1024D/2CE3B90A 2001-02-21 redmist <firstname.lastname@example.org>
pub 1024D/86E07DD5 2001-02-27 redmist <email@example.com>
sub 4096g/22605735 2001-02-27
I want to keep the key from the 27th.
Thank in advance,
