deleting duplicate key
Wed, 17 Jan 2001 19:52:31 -0500 (EST)
Dear gpg people,
I have been using gpg for some time without difficulty. However, I have
been having some difficulty with key management.
$ gpg --list-keys
pub 1024D/9A9886FE 2000-10-28 Hassan Mitha (None) <firstname.lastname@example.org>
pub 1024D/AB9666ED 2001-01-16 Hassan Mitha <hassan_m@gmx
sub 1024g/FA528CBF 2001-01-16
So you can see that there are two public keys for Hassan Mitha. I want to
remove the earlier one. However, I succeeded only in removing the subkey.
How can I take out the whole thing so that only the 2000-1-16 key is
$ gpg --edit-key email@example.com
which gave me
pub 1024D/9A9886FE created: 2000-10-28 expires: never trust: -/d
*** This key has been disabled
(1) Hassan Mitha (None) <firstname.lastname@example.org>
(I disabled this key in desperation when I could not delete it).
$ key 1
No secondary key with index 1
And various other options give me unhelpful responses which I will not
attempt to reproduce.
What should I do? Thanks in advance for any response.
Please cc me. I am not surrently to subscribed to the gpg mailing list.
Sincerely, Faheem Mitha.
