bad signatures


I am rerunning my "urpmi --auto-select" and somewhere toward the end its asking me to choose Y or N to continue installation and it mentions following packages have "bad signatures".

Here's what is says :

ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/Mandrake...-2mdk.i586.rpm
The following packages have bad signatures:
/var/cache/urpmi/rpms/libstdc++5-3.3.6-2mdk.i586.rpm: Invalid Key ID (DSA/SHA1, Fri 16 Sep 2005 02:17:30 AM EDT, Key ID 445935f878d019f5)
Do you want to continue installation ? (y/N)

What do I do?

I get that too, I always say "yes" since I have not got around to fixing it yet. Keys can be manually changed, easiest way that I usually opt for is simply deleting the download mirror that I have a bad key to and reinstalling that urpmi source from easy urpmi. This will reset the key as well.

In your example, libstdc++5-3.3.6-2mdk.i586.rpm, it is the contrib mirror, so delete that source and reinstall it to fix the key.

oops, did not notice on first read that you were not pulling libstdc++5-3.3.6-2mdk.i586.rpm from the tree at a Mandriva mirror. I don't know if there is security risks involved with pbone rpm find, I use them for finding stuff like mp3gain and such that does not have a Mandriva rpm available. The particular rpm you show there can be found in the regular contrib sources using urpmi. I am interested to know a little more about rpmfind and the such. If I came across a bad signature in any rpm I got other than from the tree on a recognized mirror I would be wary.

Looking at the download sources rpm.pbone is using on that file they are all trusted Mandriva mirrors. I'll shut up now.

the probable reason for your bad sigs is because you have the wrong rpm, look in the link you provided and it reads "Mandrakelinux/official/2006.0/i586/media"

you have LM 2005 as your distro, when you goto the easyurpmi website make sure to click on the "proceed to next step" box, and that you have 2005 as your distro.


come to think of it, you will need to delete all of your update sources and download them again for LM2005 if thats where you installed from.

Good eye for details, zeventh zenze, did not notice that. Hey Dolphans1, I remember you bought a silver membership and were having a time burning 2006. Did you not manage to get 2006 up and running yet?

Lakota,

Lakota,

What's weird was I was never able to burn a DVD ISO using K3b. I never could figure out why. During that time I purchased a Professional version of Suse Linux 10.0 (in the box with manual) for 64 bit processor and installed it on my 64bit box.

I wanted to try Suse out and see what it was like. In the meantime I downloaded Nero-for-Linux and burned the Mandriva DVD ISO for 64 bit without a hitched and it burned like in a record 6 minutes, no problems. I tested the newly burnt Mandriva ISO on Suse to see if it works but did not go all the way through with my install yet.

I want to play around with Suse until I switch back to Mandriva.

I updated Mandriva LE to Mandriva 2006 on my 32 bit machine and to be honest with you, my internet experience and applications appear faster with Mandriva than with Suse on my 64bit box. Go figure...

As to the issue with K3b, I do not know. All I can say is that my DVD burner is a newer dual burner and perhaps K3b can't handle it. I know the Nero-Linux on same operating system handles without a problem.
