    Default Repository PGP keys - export one for import on another machine

    I have the same OS and basically the same repo's on three machines. I had that error (see another post) about update not finding a Signature for a repo.
    It took lots of web searching, several posts here, and finally found the repo with the missing key. Got it fixed.

    But, I have been looking at all kinds of web search articles and man pages trying to find a way to 'export' a PGP Signature key. I thought YaST would have key export, but if it does I can't figure it out.

    Is it possible?

    I can now print with openSuSe Leap! Can Scan now, could be better!!
    I can backup my iPod and iPad with Windows, can't with Linux.(Will get there someday!)

    Default Re: Repository PGP keys - export one for import on another machine

    I have not come across a way of exporting keys from the database.

    Using Yast Software Repositories, there's a GPG Keys option which allows adding a key or deleting a key. And you see a list of keys. There is also the "rpmkeys" command for doing similar things.

    If I really need a particular key, I would look for the key-identifier with Yast Software Repositories. And then I would use
    Code:
    gpg --recv-key "identifier"
    to receive it into my own keyring. From there, I could export it to a file.
