Ouch! Don't run as root! You should not be treating root as a normal
user. You definitely should not be trying to create packages for
Fedora using root. Building rpms as root can cause you a lot of
unneeded grief. If you are looking to create official packages for
Fedora, you'll want to learn to use mock for building. If you're
just creating rpms for your own systems, you should at least use a
normal user account for package building. There is a draft doc that
has some good info.
I think that you have some other issues, which folks are trying to
help you with here. But I wanted to make sure it is pointed out that
you do NOT, under any circumstances, want to be doing this as root.
After switching to a normal user, you should probably also read the
gpg man page and the README from gpg for other good usage info.
Best of luck.
