View Full Version : Yum - Package not signed. Fedora 7

1st June 2007, 04:30 AM
Clean install. first thing I do is yum update. I get this error:

Package libwnck-2.18.2-1.fc7.i386.rpm is not signed

Anyone know what's going on?

I had the same problem, a 'yum update' from the terminal works fine though.

Not immensely helpful I suppose, but I have nothing else that needs updating after that :p

I ran it from the command line. Still no dice.

For anyone else with this problem, a quick-and-dirty solution is to edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo and set gpgcheck=1 to gpgcheck=0
That comes with a risk though.

why has packages still got the fc Tag? an not f7 ?

1st June 2007, 05:08 AM
The c in fc7 stands for collections, not core.

I think the yum reps are over lapping or mixed.

From fc7rc2 I have libwnck-

yet his is way newr.
The only update I got for fc7rc2 was smolt.
I did not alter the repos at all. They were already pointing to the fc7 set.

The package was usighed because it didn't come from fc7 updates.

I have this same issue. If it didn't come from updates, then where is it from? I see those same packages here:

I tweaked the repo file to get it working. Haven't had any problem since then, but I've only been installing software. I don't think any of the packages came from the updates repository.

I found it reported in the Bugzilla (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=241984). It is fixed now. I don't know how pup (Software Updater) works and notices fixed packages, but you can do yum clean all in the terminal and then yum update.

Thanks Petzzz,

I think they forgot to sign the packages. I downloaded new packages from the redhat download site, since I doesn't look like the mirrors have them yet. Everything works ok now.
