View Full Version : Working around Installation snags with CLI

21st July 2006, 04:59 PM
hi. i'm frustrated by a situation in which a software will not install because yum complains that it's unsigned-- mostly frustrated because this is a relatively new re-install of Fedora Core 5, and my previous, first ever install, i actually had the same software installed and running fine.

please take a look at this, and provide if you can, instruction on how to proceed so this file will install. i had no problems at all in my previous Fedora installation running this file:

thank you!

I think if you set gpgcheck=0 in /etc/yum.conf should do the trick. Otherwise, they have exactly the same rpm for download direct from the opera website.

hey there, thanks for that info! what does the 'gpgcheck=0' tell yum not to do? i'm assuming i'll want to switch that back on now?

okay-- so, now that i installed Opera, upon my first launch (via CLI) i get this in termina:
Installed: opera.i386 2:9.00-20060616.6
[root@localhost jsabarese]# opera
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libjvm.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libawt.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.


but the browser seems to be running fine.
