Description James Wilkinson 2005-06-27 11:23:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511

Description of problem:
[root@kendrick RPMS]# rpm --checksig [bc]*
bitmap-fonts-0.3-4.noarch.rpm: (SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) NOT OK (MISSING KEYS: GPG#db42a60e)
compat-db-4.2.52-2.i386.rpm: (sha1) dsa sha1 md5 gpg OK
compat-db-4.2.52-2.x86_64.rpm: (sha1) dsa sha1 md5 gpg OK

[root@kendrick RPMS]# rpm -i bitmap-fonts-0.3-4.noarch.rpm
warning: bitmap-fonts-0.3-4.noarch.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e

This means I can't download or install this through yum: yum gives the same error and won't proceed (sorry, the terminal crashed, so I can't give a script).

I have done
rpm --install /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY*
gpg --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY*
and yum's done this, too. The problem persists.

Am I being stupid?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
The only obvious setup step is that I started with a minimal install.

Additional info:

RPM above is on a loop-back mounted ISO image downloaded through bittorrent. YUm result is reproducable: I haven't edited anything under /etc/yum* yet.

Suggest that this package normally gets installed at system install, where keys are ignored, so most people won't notice this.

Works for me, try  "rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY*"
