GNG error on Synaptic, Signatures could't be verified.


Good Day,
Running Debian Testing XFCE 4 rig, yup I installed some junk, including something that is now dragging up this GPG error, most times Synaptic will publish another warning that reads something to the like of "Unable to authenticate this package. Warning unauthenticated packages could break your system or allow malicious software to mess you up" or something like that. I also get the following error. I am sure it has something to do with a public key or signature that perhaps I don't have on my box. Would be grateful for feedback.

W: GPG error: http://www.os-works.com testing Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY CF455A0A8AC2C0A6
W: GPG error: http://secure-testing.debian.net etch/security-updates Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 946AA6E18722E71E
W: GPG error: ftp://ftp.debian-unofficial.org sarge Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY F82E5CC04B2B2B9E

Thanks,
Stimz.

If you are a desktop user and have entered a repository you trust,
I suppose you could just ignore the message and install anyway...

I get the same message with Mandriva from time to time

Yep, I ignore it, but it would be nice to get rid of it too.
If you also have any idea how to install wireless on a laptop, that would be most appreciated. I have a buffalo WLI-CB-G54 on a compaq armarda, I am already aware that Buffalo cards are win only and one has to do something to the kernal to get it to work. I tried following the guides but all the guides had a different kernal location to me, which made it very hard to follow. Oh, Plus I haven't got a clue how to upgrade my kernal. I only just worked out how to unpack a tarbal!
Cheers.

Thumbs up

Ta Emmanuel,
any clues about xconfig? I try to run 'xconfig' in terminal to edit my kernal, probably not a good idea, I get "command does not exist".
Thanks about tux mag sounds great! Look forwards to reading it. Have a good 'n.

Stimz,
Bournemouth

Ta for ta
do you really need to recompile your kernel? I mean is that the way you want to go?
Lots to learn that way, for sure, but it is interesting
Did you look for some tutorials on the subject?

I have discovered that no, I don't need to recompile the Kernel, my Wireless card is windoze only and therefore I thought I needed to install a special patch onto the Kernel. Thankfully actually reading the patch documentation informed me that debian has two packages that control the PCMCIA card slot. I had the program as such (pcmcia-cs) but not the data for it (pcmcia-modules) I have just downloaded with synaptic the newest version, as also the kernel source, the Debian system I am running has a Kernel Image not source (as far as I understand at least). I am looking into the authorization thing. I *think it has something to do with a public key which I have not logged into . So that outside sources can identify and authenticate my machine. But I will try to look into it. Google here I come! Have a happy Christmas, Emmanuel indeed. Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel and Ransom captive Israel! I'm off to Italy for two weeks (see extended family and visit Rome). Thanks!

- Bit of a set back, for those following this, make sure that any debian package or any patch is the same edition as the kernel image. I accidently downloaded the wrong Kernel Image, and wrong package. No use if I'm running a different kernel :/

ave-maria:~# ndiswrapper -l
Installed ndis drivers:
inffile invalid driver!
ave-maria:~#

possibly driver in the wrong folder.
I am not going to be able to help much more because
i do not have the working experience of a wifi card.
I know some of the theory, but less of the practice
