It's line 8 of /etc/profile.d/gpg-agent.sh that needs to be deleted,
then logout/in to start the gpg-agent.

That line contains "-s /etc/mtab && \", which is a test the mtab
file exists, and is not zero size.  In Mageia 2, /etc/mtab has been
replaced with a symlink to /proc/mounts, so the test fails, preventing
gpg-agent from starting.  Just deleting that line fixes the problem.
