GAIM doesnt install


I have downloaded latest version of gaim for fc2.

on giving the following command
rpm -i gaim-1.0.0-0.FC2.src.rpm

It gives the error
warning: gaim-1.0.0-0.FC2.src.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2

Plz help.

rpm --checksig gaim* - check a pgp signiture of a package
rpm -Uvh gaim* - install the package

or my personal favorite

sudo yum install gaim - have yum download and install the package, it may just be a corrupt download, but then im a n00b.

Let me know how it all comes out in the end *snicker*

you seem like you are trying to install a source rpm, is it a binary that you want or are you trying to make your own from the source. rpm -Uvh --force will install your rpm for you and ignores the signature check.

Sounds like somethings wrong with the signature

But I don't think warnings will impede an installation, there is a different problem most likely. Are you installing as root, or with root priveledges, i.e. sudo?
