Hi ,


Gnupg not able to generate keys for non-root user .


$ gpg2 --version

You need a Passphrase to protect your secret key.

Warning: using insecure memory!

Afetr this the passphrase prompt doesnt prompt me for password ??

It acually just keeps on running forever like ;


│ Enter passphrase │
│ │
│ │
│ Passphrase *************************************___ │
│ │
│ <OK> <Cancel>


For root user its absolsutely fine .



Thanks & Regards,
