i had a problem with an unsigned package during a yum -y update

i solved the problem by

yum clean all
rpm --import http://freshrpms.net/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.txt
rpm --import http://apt.sw.be/dries/RPM-GPG-KEY.dries.txt

Why not just use rpm to install it with 'rpm -Uvh packagename' Here's a tutorial on rpm: http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/s1-intro-...t-started.html

Well, you'd install that one as 'rpm -ivh kernelname', but why do you want to install the older one? More importantly, why would you ever consider installing a kernel that is not supported by Fedora? This doesn't sound good at all.

I'm not sure what's going on here, but if you're looking for the original kernel you can use "yum install kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.i686.rpm" or substitute the version that fits your computer's architecture.

Looks like it's already installed? Try: "rpm -qa | grep kernel"

You could try the "rpm -e" in case something's left behind from when you did the prior removal but what is this program that you're trying to install that requires an obsolete kernel? Maybe there's a simple way around this.

yes i could compile it from source but when i do the next kernel update yum would remove the kernel i have build the package for
if i install it with yum there would be a dependency and yum would leave the old kernel
