Thanks for the reply Andrew, but i think you misunderstood my question. I know how to use rpm's. I'm getting bad signatures when trying to install rpm's. shrike.freshrpms.net sugested to install the public keys i mentioned above, did not work.
Distribution: Fedora Core 2, SuSE 9.1 Professional
I ran into the same problem when I started with RH9. After installing the key, it still didn't work. The I said, what the heck, I'll just install anyway and ignore the warnings...I haven't had any problems installing anything from Fresh RPMs, except, of course, solving lots of dependency issues (usually available right there too...just have to figure them out).
So is rpm NOT ALLOWING an installation? or just warning you about the signatures?
My experience is that it will still install even after the warning.
Thanks for the help,
The rpms install fine but just give me a warning. So i'm good to go.
One of the major problems is that at first I was just clicking on the rpm to install it, and that does not work at all.
RPM-GPG-KEY.txt is the public key from freshrpms.
I also have problems with the GPG keys. I installed them I think improperly so now I can not import keys. There were two keys to install and I installed in the wrong order. I need the correct keys to use APT because APT will not proceed without them.
