Backup GPG Keys?
I'm about to format soon and I was wondering how I could backup my pub/priv GPG keys? Should I just backup the entire gpg directory?
I'm using Mandrake 9.1

According to the GPG man page, your secret key must be located at ~/.gnupg/secring.gpg
and your public key at ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg
The location of the GPG directory can be different, but your keys must normally be in it unless you configured it to use them in another folder. Anyway you must backup those two keys.
