A workaround is to use up2date-config, unclick on "Use GPG to verify package
integrity" under Retrieval / Installation and save.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2005-04-27 23:55:22 UTC
Does up2date download it or grab it from /usr/share/rhn/...?

Comment 3 Martin Welss 2005-04-28 07:22:50 UTC
good point! it justs asks if I want to install the key, but does not say from
where... so it might be from /usr/share/rhn

Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2005-06-27 15:58:28 UTC

It imports from /usr/share/rhn which is not a bug and doesnt have a chance of
being spoofed
