Have you tried this? The problem is gnupg wants to write trustdb.gpg. I've configured the automounter to use my key's from floppy-disc, but it doesn't work, if I make the disk write-protected. gpg --list-keys gpg: fatal: /misc/floppy/.gnupg: can't create directory: Permission denied secmem usage: 0/0 bytes in 0/0 blocks of pool 0/16384 # killall -USR1 automount Write enabled: waldemar@hawkeye:~$ gpg --list-keys /misc/floppy/.gnupg/pubring.gpg ------------------------------- pub 1024D/BE21BD90 2000-02-26 Waldemar Brodkorb (Linux rulez!) <waldemar.brodkorb@web.de> Is there a solution for this? thanks in advance bye Waldemar -- * Von Linux-Usern für Linux-User: | (o_ * * http://www.links2linux.de | //\ * * Linux rulez! ;-) | V_/_ * * GnuPG-Key: 0xBE21BD90 | Tux: #155220 | ICQ: 64035650 *
