Question yum update problem

When I do yum update, it's downloaded the first package and after the message:

xorg-x11-xauth-6.7.0-5.i3 100% |=========================| 233 kB 00:04
warning: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
Error: Could not find the GPG Key necessary to validate pkg /var/cache/yum/updates/packages/xorg-x11-xauth-6.7.0-5.i386.rpm
Error: You may want to run yum clean or remove the file:
Error: You may also check that you have the correct GPG keys installed

What can I do?
What's the problem

All RPMs are signed by a GPG key, it determines the authenticity of the package. The one fedora uses is somewhere in your source directory (I never bother with finding it, just run up2date once at it will install it for you, if it doesn't you can find it.) If you are not getting this file from a Red Hat mirror, they most likely sign it with a different key.

Find the key, save it as a text file and import it with

rpm --import (Your Key)
