its right there in your blog/main website page, isnt it? I already
gave the link below:

running that command on a new file (manpage actually says it gets
generated a new file when the file isnt present, thus giving me new
public/private keypair in that new filename) gives me a long string
that doesnt get accepted on the registration page at

only the gnunet-rsa -s mykeyfile
generates a string/hash that I can use on the registration page.
on the -P keytype/hashtype I only get key parsing error from the fcfs
registration webpage as a result or so.

please be precise and detailed about what to use exactly, as I have
stated above only the -s hash works on the registering page, the -P
hash doesnt work, thats already a first confusion for new users
