Trying to install skype on fedora 12


following a suggestion in a web posting i created a file skype.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/
Code:
[skype]
name=Skype Repository
baseurl=http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/fedora/updates/i586/
gpgkey=http://www.skype.com/products/skype/linux/rpm-public-key.asc
I then tried to install it
Code:
yum install skype
all went well untill it finished a 19MB 4 min download, then it said
Code:
Package skype-2.1.0.81-fc.i586.rpm  is not signed
Obviously I did something wrong - can someone suggest what I should do?

Thanks - Dick

and returned to the prompt

To install a pkg either you have import the public key of that pkg or you have to bypass the gpgkey checking by adding the line
Code:
gpgcheck=0
in skype.repo .
