FC3 yum issue...


just switched to FC3 after using debian for a year having yum problems..

yes its the public key problem,,, heres the specifics...

#yum install mplayer
(and when it tries to doqwnload the packages...)

Downloading Packages:
warning: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b

public key not available for //var/cache/yum/freshrpms/packages/libdvdcss-1.2.8- 4.1.fc3.fr.i386.rpm
[root@localhost vidski]#

Now i see some keys at http://freshrpms.net/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.txt and i tried to run a #rpm --import http://freshrpms.net/packages/build...G-KEY.freshrpms

but its no good. do i need to do this from a specific location or what?
because when i first tried to run yum it wouldnt do anything because of a similar public key problem. so i ran a similar command in /usr/share/something like that and thren yum worked. but there are still lots of applications that toss back this same problem..

im a bit confused on this key thing, this wasnt an issue back when i used yum on FC1 it all worked fine. can i do something to install almost all tjhe keys or is this going to be a common issue or,,, anyone know ahything about this? and i apologize if this is a repost i havent been around in awhile.. tnx all.

Did you try going straight to gpg?

gpg --import RPM-GPG-KEY.txt

I couldn't get gpg to import the keys; I found this to work instead..

rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY

The file, RPM-GPG-KEY is in the root of the installation cd's. There are other key files but this was the only one I imported.

I didnt have any further problems with yum after that!

yum public keys - needed all of them

Thanks for this useful thread. I actually had to install all of the public keys to run 'yum update' effectively on a system that was updated from red hat 9 to Fedora Core 3. The FC3 DVD loaded into /media/cdrecord, I logged in as root and ran

cd ~
cp /media/cdrecord/RPM* .
rpm --install RPM*
yum update

It's a little surprising just how many updates there are after an FC3 installation.

I tried the above line and received the line:

error: RPM-GPG-KEY: import read failed.

The installation of FC3 was from a DVD. Can I download the uncorrupted file from somewhere?

Thanks.

rmy1,

This only means there's no RPM-GPG-KEY file in the directory you're standing in. If you give it the full path it should still work. If not then that probably means your DVD is corrupted, in which case I would reburn it (you don't know what else might be corrupted on it).

Also, this site tells you where to get keys: http://fedorafaq.org/#gpgsig

Thumbs up Public Keys

Thanks Gypsy for the link to the GPG Keys !!! I wish it would have been easier to find than just stumbling across it ... regardless, solved my yum problems.
