Hi John, I found out the problem with after I was hit in the head with a
2x4, apparently something was wrong with my secring.gpg file. I copied
from my backup over to the ~/.gnupg folder and everything looks ok
again. I was even able to sign my clamav rpms:

[chris at localhost i586]$ gpg -K
gpg: using character set `utf-8'
gpg: using PGP trust model
gpg: key 98E6705C: accepted as trusted key
sec   1024D/98E6705C 2005-11-23
uid                  Chris Pollock <cpollock at>
uid                  Chris Pollock (New email address as of 04/21/07)
<cpollock at>
ssb   2048g/F5604046 2005-11-23

[chris at localhost i586]$ rpm -v --checksig
    Header V4 DSA signature: OK, key ID 98e6705c
    Header SHA1 digest: OK (975c02d67357a42e5698b3050deadae945434be7)

    V4 DSA signature: OK, key ID 98e6705c

Thanks again to you and everyone else who replied to this thread. One
thing for sure backups definitely come in handy!
