Cant generate ssl key!?

Whenever I issue the command "genkey --days 365" in the terminal, the GUI pops up to prompt me to generate the serial and all goes well until at the end it says "was not able to create a certificate for this host". How do I fix I need a certificate now.

Strange, I made it from 1024bit to 2048bit and the error disappeared. Still, should I use the 1024 or the 2048? I read 2048 is slower and that 1024 was recommended.
NVM I got it working, it seems the entries are mest up, you need to go to custom and manually input 1024.
