How to generate a keyring file when using tde?

I want to test tde feature on my pc, according to below links:

I installed mysql-sever and mysql-client, which versions is 5.1.17 on Ubuntu 1604.

then I setup my.cnf (/etc/mysql/my.cnf), added keyring configurations, and mkdir as /usr/share/mysql/mysql-keyring, chown it's right to mysql.

then, restart mysql by sudo systemctl stop/start mysql,

then, I login by mysql -uroot -p, create database db1, use db1,

until now it looks all good, but when i create table t1(id int) encryption='Y', I got an error that:

ERROR 3185(HY000): Can't find master key from keyring, please check keyring plugin is loaded.

but if i run "create table t1(id int) encryption='Y' ", it works,

I'm confused because i run select plugin_name, plugin_status from xxx.plugin,
I see keyfile plugin is running, alive.

You said that there should be a file "keyring" store master key, and it is
/usr/share/mysql/mysql-keyring/keyring, now my question are:

1) Should the file "keyring" be empty?

2) If not, what is the file format, and what should be stored in it, is there a sample?

3)If it should be empty, what should i do for fix the issue?

Please help me and i've read all your documents and google all possible answers but i had not get an solution.
