Can't install kdepim

I installed kde-3.4.0-0.fc3.i386 from rpms but am unable to install kdepim. I get the following error: public key not available for kdepim-3.4.0-4.i386.rpm.

I tried importing gpg key:
[root@localhost Kimberly]# sudo rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
warning: cannot get exclusive lock on /var/lib/rpm/Packages

I tried adding repo list from to etc/yum.conf and got a Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: kde-redhat-stable error.
I tried editing repo list to add baseurl [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Date: Thu, 05 May 2005 19:58:41 GMT

I removed the repo list and tried running yum without gpgcheck

I'm out of ideas. Can anyone help?

This usually occurs if you have another instance of rpm running (when you run rpm, it creates a lock file that signals to other possible instances that it is running, and possibly writing information to the RPM database). You can assertain whether there are any more rpm processes running by running:

sudo /sbin/pidof rpm
If there are any running (it will return a PID number(s) if there are), you can run:

sudo killlall rpm

If there are not any other rpm processes running (running pidof doesn't return any PIDs), try this:

sudo rm -f /var/lock/rpm/transaction
And then try to run your command again.

Thanks that helped. Unfortunately, it wasn't the key I needed. I was able to import the correct key using the key manager and then got an error saying the package was unsigned. If I set checksig=0, then I got (the now famous) ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack.

I finally got it installed by updating up2date and running from the command line:
up2date install kdepim

Who knew?

Thanks again for the help
