Question Installing Applications From the Install CD

Wanting to have a rewritable CD, I searched through the install CD's given to me to install Fedora to try to find the k3b rpm. I finally found it and, in the command line as superuser, I typed:

yum localinstall disablerepo=extras disablerepo=core disablerepo=updates /media/{name of disk}/Fedora/RPMS/{name of rpm package}
However, when it started to go through the install process and ask me if I wanted to install the package, I said yes, but the command line told me I needed the public key for the k3b package.

I found a lot of public keys in the first directory of the disk, but they all seem to be text files. So, I have to questions: (1) How do I tell which ones to use, and (2) How do I install the public key?

I know it has nothing to do with the Internet, because other apps were able to be installed with the Linux instillation process, and I have no Internet on the computer.

Note: I'm sorry I'm not being that descriptive, but if you check out my hardware problem (, you'll find that I cannot transfer the output any way (at least for right now).

Anything (pertinent, of course) would be helpful. Thank you.


disk, install, k3b, key, public
