I installed gnupg with all related modules as well as pinentry module on a redhat linux server.
Now, when I try to run gpg2, to generate a key using command line gpg2 --gen-key I get the following error.
GnuPG needs to construct a user ID to identify your key.
Real name: rudupa
Email address: rudupa at test.com
You selected this USER-ID:
"rudupa (test) <rudupa at test.com>"
Change (N)ame, (C)omment, (E)mail or (O)kay/(Q)uit? O
You need a Passphrase to protect your secret key.
gpg-agent: can't connect to the PIN entry module: IPC connect call failed
gpg-agent: command get_passphrase failed: No pinentry
gpg: problem with the agent: No pinentry
gpg: Key generation canceled.
I am running gpg-agent in the daemon mode with following parameters
gpg-agent --options /u4/udupa/gnupg/gpg-agent.conf --daemon --verbose --log-file /tmp/log --enable-ssh-support --debug-all
I am using the following gpg-agent.conf config file.
-bash-3.00$ cat gpg-agent.conf
