Description of problem:

Xen failed to create xenU installation.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 15, in ?

This worked after I manually created /xen/perf1/var/cache/yum/.gpgkeyschecked.yum

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 yum-2.3.1-1   on  2.6.11-1.1219_FC4xen0 kernel

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install xen0
2.setup xen perf web site instructions
3. failed in the yum install section.

Actual Results:  [root@dhcp83-22 shak]# yum --installroot=/xen/perf1 -y groupinstall Base
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 15, in ?
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 51, in main

    self.parseCommands() # before we exit check over the base command + args
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 339, in parseCommands
    if not self.gpgKeyCheck():
  File "", line 1118, in gpgKeyCheck
