Background

On 2012-12-23 the GPG key used for signing all gNewSense packages expired. This page exists to help people install an updated key to prevent warnings like the following:

 > W: GPG error: http://archive.gnewsense.org deltah-backports Release: The following signatures were invalid: KEYEXPIRED 1252532309 KEYEXPIRED 1252532309 KEYEXPIRED 1252532309

 > W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

Update key.

Currently, the only way to fix this is manually.

The following commands should download the updated key, and add it to apt's GPG keyring.

 wget -O key.gpg 'http://www.gnewsense.org/Main/FixExpiredArchiveKey?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=updated-gns-build-key2.gpg'
 sudo apt-key add key.gpg

Other locations for the key.

The key is (re)added by base-files (gnewsense version 13) when the package is upgraded.

Thanks,
