Description dunwoody 1999-10-07 19:24:39 UTC
Every time I download a .rpm file, I check it with
rpm -K --nopgp.  I downloaded a bunch of rpms today from, and
some of them failed the rpm -K --nopgp test with the error
"md5 GPG NOT OK".  I am using ncftp-3.0beta19-1 and

downloaded today did pass the rpm -K --nogpgp test just

The following rpms failed the test after I downloaded them:

They're signed with GPG, not PGP. To omit the check, do --nogpg.
(GPG is Gnu Privacy Guard,
