I can't answer your question directly, but I did a search for you at and found this, a similar situation:

What does "warning: ...rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 5dfbf7dc" mean?

Before installing a package, RPM tries to verify its integrity.

The packages distributed by Linuxant are cryptographically signed with our public PGP key, which is not known to RPM by default. However, it can be found on many keyservers or downloaded from

Once you have downloaded our public key, you can import it in your RPM database. You can do this with the following command:

rpm --import /path/to/pubkey.asc

After the key has been imported, the NOKEY warning messages should disappear.

Afterward, a package's signature can be verified with the command:

rpm --checksig /path/to/package.rpm
