Thanks.
P.S.
Spent 5 minutes wondering who ANN is, and why she needs to know about a sbopkg update.

Have used sbopkg many times with no issues. Now I'm getting the following message after syncing with the repository:

unsafe ownership on configuration file '/home/pat/.g
external program calls are disabled due to unsafe options fil
keyserver communications error: general error
WARNING: unable to fetch URL http://www.slackbuilds.org/GPG-K
Import done

All files in /home/pat are owned by patat. Where do I look to fix this?
Even better - what am I trying to fix?

patostevens: never seen that but it's probably a gpg/gnupg error. Try 'chmod 600 ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf' if it's not already. -- Actually, wait a minute. You're getting a message about /home/pat/? You should be running sbopkg as root (at this point) and it should be looking at /root/.gnupg/gpg.conf, and that should be root:root/600.

brianL: sorry about that.

piratesmack: welcome

ponce: great, thanks!

Is she also HAL's sister?

I think HAL's their big brother. Creator of the famous computer which he named after himself, but which obviously wasn't running Slackware (might have been Windows 2001?).

I am running sbopkg as root. I have tried playing with ownership of /home/pat/.gnupg and it's files to no avail. It doesn't who owns what, the same error comes up. Also, ownerships in the ~/.gnupg are all root:root.

Also I have removed and re-installed sbopkg - same issue.

Any other ideas?

Like I say, /home/pat/* shouldn't have anything to do with this and it's not just the ownership, but the perms - root:root with the .gnupg dir as 700 and files as 600. Re-installing sbopkg won't have any effect because it's not an sbopkg problem. Somehow gpg seems to be running as the wrong user. What may be the problem may also be a solution: do you have GNUPGHOME set anywhere or have 'gpg' aliased/functioned/scripted to anything else? If so, unset it or clear the other stuff out so it runs the correct command. If not, try making sure the perms and ownership on /root/.gnupg and its files are correct and then run 'GNUPGHOME=/root/.gnupg sbopkg'. That command just makes explicit what ought to be the default.

pat, try becoming root with
Code:
su -
instead of the bare
Code:
su
this way you should get the right environment variables.

Thanks slakmagic - your suggestion to run the GNUPGHOME command seems to have fixed it. I have no idea what caused the issue as I try never to mess with the settings like that. Oh well, probably demons from the 7th circle of M$ hell attacked my system. Thanks for the help everyone.

I don't know what caused it, either, but I'm glad it's working for you now.
