• Can't pass AUR - Register, could anybody help?


    I know I should ask at Arch Linux Forums, but I’m not an Arch user, so I’m looking for help on my own community first.

    I’d like to submit a package to AUR, and I got in trouble at the very beginning - while registering an account. I’m following this guide. I got stuck at the The PGP fingerprint is invalid message here: screenshot

    I’m trying to create the user ‘nwg’. The questions are:

    What should I enter here?

    Host aur.archlinux.org
      IdentityFile ~/.ssh/aur
      User aur

    Which part of ‘The key fingerprint’ should I paste as the PGP Key Fingerprint value? The $ ssh-keygen -f ~/.ssh/aur produces:

    [[email protected] ~]$ ssh-keygen -f ~/.ssh/aur
    Generating public/private rsa key pair.
    Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): 
    Enter same passphrase again: 
    Your identification has been saved in /home/piotr/.ssh/aur.
    Your public key has been saved in /home/piotr/.ssh/aur.pub.
    The key fingerprint is:
    The key's randomart image is:
    +---[RSA 2048]----+
    |       o+*       |
    |       .= E      |
    |        .   .    |
    |     . . = =     |
    |    + * S @      |
    |   . * X / o     |
    |    . X B X .    |
    |     = = * .     |
    |      =+o        |
    [[email protected] ~]$

    If I manage to pass this part, I’ll also have to know if I’m expected to paste all the aur.pub content into the SSH Public Key: field. It looks like:

    ssh-rsa ALOTOFNUMBERSANDDIGITSHERE [email protected]

    Could you please check out my game?

  • Alright, this works this way:

    • Open .ssh/aur key, paste the SHA1 fingerprint value (remove spaces) as the ‘PGP Key Fingerprint’ value;
    • Open the aur.pub file, paste its content (strip 'ssh-rsa ’ at the beginning and ‘[email protected]’ at the end) into the ‘SSH Public key’ field.
