hmm if you get it every time, it is most likely because your key is to old. The redhat developers may have changed it. So you should try to find the new key on redhats server.

So how do I go about updating them? I'm using Mandrake 9.1.

Thanks in advanced.

How are you trying to install the packages?
Do you run
rpm -Uvh package-name
or are you running something like apt-get?

First off sorry about the bump. I'll know for the future.

Normally I just download the RPM's and then double click on them.
Hmmm? is that wrong?

Nothing wrong if it works

Just i don't think i've ever had a bad signature error.
What if you try from command line rpm -Uvh package-name

I'm still getting the error but it seems to install ok. I'm having a much better time this go around. DVd's work, xmule works (cept for that lowid) and maybe one day I'll get the printer to work.
