Some details:

-Linux shuttle 4.4.36-desktop-2.mga5 #1 SMP Tue Dec 6 16:56:06 UTC 2016 
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

-gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.19

-Aide 0.15.1

Compiled with the following options:

CONFIG_FILE = "/etc/aide.conf"

My daily aide report from cron  run-parts –report /etc/cron.daily shows 
me this:

Verifying the GPG signature on the database…

gpg: assuming signed data in `aide.db'
gpg: Signature made Thu 29 Oct 2015 04:09:13 AM MDT using DSA key ID 
gpg: Can't check signature: public key not found

I show this key on my keyring:

      pub   1024D/4923BBC4 2015-10-29
      uid                  AIDE (AIDE verification key) <aide at shuttle>
      sub   1024g/647DA878 2015-10-29

Am I missing something, or shouldn't aide use gpg to find this key and 
check the db against it?

I'm sorry if I'm being obtuse here, but I have scoured Google on this 
and honestly can't get the dots to line up.  Any help appreciated.

Thank you, and merry Christmas.
