gnupg errors

i am getting some errors when trying to generate a new keypair.

Code:
[josh@localhost ~]$ gpg --gen-key

   (2) DSA (sign only)
   (4) RSA (sign only)
Your selection?
anyone have any ideas? i checked the faq on gnupg.org and the error showed up but as an error in ver. 1.0.4. it says it is a known bug that has been fixed in newer versions. i am runnung ver. 1.2.6. also, there were no bugs in the gnupg bug tracker.thanks in advance.

Well, the error says:

`/home/josh/.gnupg/.#lk0xf7005868.localhost.localdomain.5180': No such file or directory

Have you tried creating the /home/josh/.gnupg directory? Also, make sure that you have write permissions to that directory. I've sometimes created a directory as root, but then the userid I normally use can't write to it. To correct that situation (as root):

chown -R userid.group directory

heh. it wasnt a permission issue. evidently i created a .gpg directory instead of a .gnupg directory. i didnt realize it until i read your post. thanks for the tip everything is working now.
