Here's what mine look like.
I import the keys with these commands:
Code:
rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
rpm --import http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...-Fedora-Extras
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
Code:
[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/
mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-core-$releasever
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

[updates-released]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch/
mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/updates-released-fc$releasever
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-extras.repo
Code:
[extras]
name=Fedora Extras - $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

Does your /etc/yum.repos.d/freshrpms.repo file look like this?

# $Id: freshrpms.repo 2478 2004-11-11 22:44:01Z dude $
[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Freshrpms
#baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms/
mirrorlist=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/mirrors-freshrpms
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

It seems to me that YUM isn't too happy with freshrpms. If you have the same file that I am using, maybe you just need to try again. (you probably have) Every once in a while, I'll get an error, but I can't remember if that was it. It looks like everything else you are doing is correct.

Something else that may help: This file: /var/cache/yum/freshrpms/repomd.xml may not be matching up with what is being downloaded. Here's what the file looks like on my box:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<repomd xmlns="http://linux.duke.edu/metadata/repo">
<data type="other">
<location href="repodata/other.xml.gz"/>
<checksum type="sha">f88a3eb07c8c631266e8201c73a1837db9d85f1f</checksum>
<timestamp>1113755555</timestamp>
<open-checksum type="sha">290667dfd3df3e94a55a72eb3c26dd3b2a542091</open-checksum>
</data>
<data type="filelists">
<location href="repodata/filelists.xml.gz"/>
<checksum type="sha">f754a1a798b7a72af675076c982eb127c14a3b09</checksum>
<timestamp>1113755555</timestamp>
<open-checksum type="sha">240a3b2527bc3c00164859aa86618fdfbdf8affc</open-checksum>
</data>
<data type="primary">
<location href="repodata/primary.xml.gz"/>
<checksum type="sha">77e7486e223a8a0a98bfed84588b8c438392239b</checksum>
<timestamp>1113755555</timestamp>
<open-checksum type="sha">ec263a070bc4ce47fb26a95dfaa70b0b81914868</open-checksum>
</data>
</repomd>

My line of thought here is that yum looks in either this file or some other checksum sort of file and isn't finding the correct checksum from what you're downloading.

Perhaps you need to remove anything involved with freshrpms, and reinstall the freshrpm repository related files. You probably wouldn't need to reimport the gpg key, but it wouldn't hurt, either.

Good luck.
