problems with mosrs-cache-password & gpg-agent on PUMA

Reported by: luke Owned by: um_support
Component: PUMA Keywords: mosrs,gpg-agent

I am trying to copy a Rose suite on PUMA, and I am being repeatedly asked for my MOSRS password. When I try to run mosrs-cache-password I get the following errors:

[12:09:06 luke@puma ~]$ mosrs-cache-password
gpg-agent: no process killed
Error: gpg-agent not working
Run "mosrs-cache-password" to try caching your password again
Exit 1

Can I ask for suggestions as to what to do?

Many thanks,

Hi Luke,

You appear to have commented out the section in your ~/.profile which starts up the gpg-agent.

[[ "$-" != *i* ]] && return # Stop here if not running interactively
. mosrs-setup-gpg-agent

Try running . mosrs-setup-gpg-agent on the command line and see if that works. If it does then please uncomment the lines in your .profile.

This will mean it prompts for your MOSRS password the first time you log in to PUMA each day - but if you aren't going to be using MOSRS just hit return. You can then run moses-cache-password as you have done above if you find you then need it.

Hi Ros,

Thanks! That seems to work - silly me!
