gpg key patrick


#1

hi everyone,

Im new to whonix and everything. and i was following the anon guide about installing the whonix gateway and workstation. However i wanted to verify the GPG key so i did. gpg --import patrick.asc but i get this key: 8d66066a2eeaccda
But is should be 2eeaccda. i also get instead of imported:1 (RSA: 1) i get unchanged :1

thank you for the help

Hi evergreen66

That is OK. Just the full key fingerprint has to be the same. fingerprint = 916B 8D99 C38E AF5E 8ADC 7A2A 8D66 066A 2EEA CCDA . The difference is one is gpg long key fingerprint and the other is the short key fingerprint.

Please post the exact output. I believe the guide instructs you to install Debian-8. Did you install Debian-9 instead?
