Mplayer (PLF) install gives me "Signature Verfication Error"


After I downloaded the PLF version (includes DVD playback) of Mplayer for Mandrake 9.1. I get the following error:
"Signature Verification Error
The signature of the package 'divc4linux-20020418-3plf.i586.rpm' is not correct.
Gpg: signature made.... using DSA key ID CABA22AE
gpg: can't check signature: public key not found
Do you want to install it anyway?"
I said NO to the install and the same for each other file downloaded.I have a dial up connection so please don't tell me to try again.
Why do I have to get some key? Where do I get this key? What do I do with this keyHow do I install this key in Mandrake 9.1 (if I need to)?

It's safe to say 'yes' to the signature check, the rpm gets installed just fine anyway. By the way, why is there always this error message, even when the package is ok, and it can be installed correctly??

I am very new to computers and Linux
in particular. I would like to ask a
question if I may. I dont know if this
is bad manners to interject into a
conversation but I need an answer and
dont know where or how to post it.

I bought a very cheap Microtel computer MicrotelSYSMAR 710. It was
supposed to be ready to go online.
I bought it from Walmart.

No instructions came with it not even
a bill of sale. I called but have
gotten promises but no results. I
even into intouch with the Microtel
company. I was told to buy their
monitor (which I did) then I was told
I needed to put in a modem.(which)
I did. The rep walked me through it.
THE MODEM CAME TO ME WITHOUT A BILL
OF SALE TO TELL WHICH IT WAS OR WHAT
COMPANY IT CAME FROM.

Now after all of this, I am getting
the run around from Microtel. The switchboard op wont put me through to
a tech.

My problem is that when I tried to
install the Recovery disc after putting in the new modem I keep getting a FATAL ERROR 6000.

Now I cant get the computer to show
any program. It appears all wiped out.

I cant install the program with the
recovery disc.

I was told to live the Password area
blank. It that correct? Is it possible
that this is what is giving the
error.

Thanks.
Cadilla

Instead of "post reply," you want to click "make new thread" in the forum.

As for the signature verification errors, that's because you haven't told GPG that you trust plf sources. to do so, download http://plf.zarb.org/plf.asc and then run "gpg --import plf.asc" in the directory you downloaded to.

Generally, it's fine to say yes and go ahead with the install, even without the key.

Thanks for the explanation about the key. Now I know what I am missing and where to get it.
However, I am downloading RPMS and I have no way of knowing where Mplayer is going to install. Similarily the install starts as soon as the download is complete. How do I install the key into a directory before the install as its the install process which creates the directory?

Once gpg knows about the key, the install directory is irrevelavent. Is there something particular you need from the PLF version of mplayer? I used urpmi to update to version .9 and it plays every file I've ever thrown at it.

Cheers.

I use the PLF version of Mplayer because Mandrake do not provide a DVD decoder in there version due to the "legal quagmire".
Everytime, I use Mplayer (Mandrake and PLFs version) it hangs my system - I have to press CTRL+ALT+Bckspc to shut down the system.

Ok. Since I don't have a DVD drive in my system I wouldn't have noticed that.

However, you may take a look at sound. I had something just like that happen to me with Xine because it was using ALSA instead of aRTsd.

Cheers.

My sound did not work until I went through the drivers troubleshooting instructions. Same driver I just had to trun various commands. I get an high pitched whistle sometimes when I pass my hand over the speaker on the laptops palmrest.
It is an ALSA driver but how do I switch to aRTsd? I am a newbie.

aRtsd is controlled by the KDE configuration. Check out the Control Center. The high pitched whistle is very odd.

Cheers.

Mandrake 9.1 comes out with the dvd decoder and Mplayer, It's just that it is not included in the installation process. search for the "dvd" keyword inside rpm drake (go to add software in the Mandrake Control Center).

I'm using Xine to read DVD and it works perfectly (when it comes to DVD playing, I really DO prefer this soft)

If you can find it anyway..... As i'm using a powerpack, it might explain why I have it (I dunno about the download version)

The key is usually provided inside a package to asume that it has not been corrupted nor modified. But it is not included in mandrake unofficial / cooker rpm's.

Anyway, you could have said yes to that question so that it would have installed the package anyway (and remove it with urpmi if it would have not worked) Of course, if you only seek for best security, you've done right.

John,

to get the DVD option in xine you need to install with rpmdrake those library:

libdvdcss, lib dvdnav, libdvdplay and libdvdread.

Also install the xine-dvdnav to access the DVD navigation through Xine (but this is a beta)
