Yeah, thanks. It's the key that signed the .sig and the one I needed to download to verify. I downloaded it from a Key Server--don't know how else to get the public key.
I checked the gpg package legitimacy on a computer that already had gpg installed. But wanted to make sure I had a legit pub key for the new machine i was building. Thanks!
Is there another way to verify the legitimacy of a downloaded public key? (assuming you don't know any of the other sigs on the pub key that is, obviously). Or is asking on a user list like this the recommended way?
