GPG Key Missing.


When trying to update, there comes a problem with a missing key. I'm figuring you need to update that key to download from the repositories. I'm a little stumped on how to get the key or renew it.

Downloading Packages:
warning: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6


Public key for mtr-0.75-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm is not installed
Thanks.

While you may be familiar with some GUI tool that deals with your GPG keys, the command-line method of importing that key would be like so:

Code:
shell# gpg --recv-keys 6b8d79e6
That will import that particular key.

I ran this code and then re-run the yum -y update and got the same error.
Code:
shell# gpg --recv-keys 6b8d79e6
Which .rpm file would I download and when I upload it to my server, what would I do to get it activated (fixing the key error)?

well you'd need the el5 version to match your distro. Mind you, that's only based on the name of the package you were trying to install. Are you on el5?

rpm -Uvh http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/r...l5.rf.i386.rpm

How do you determine which version? I'm running CentOS 5.4(Final)..

How? I just looked for the one with el5 (i.e. Centos 5.x, Redhat EL 5.x) in it.

I didn't see Centos on the column on the right. Would using a fedora version work with centos?

I know I'll need one with an I836.

I already linked you to the right one...??

and it'll be i386, not I836.

rpm -Uvh http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/r...l5.rf.i386.rpm

When I try running that, I get some unexpected error.
