View Full Version : Problem using yum.

You have enabled checking of packages via GPG keys. This is a good thing.
However, you do not have any GPG public keys installed. You need to download
the keys for packages you wish to install and install them.
You can do that by running the command:
rpm --import public.gpg.key
For more information contact your distribution or package provider.

My question is, where do i find those gpg keys or even better, how do i simply stop fc3 bugging me with that, because i was trying to use yum to install apt :D, and although i put gpgcheck=0, it still asks for a gpg key.

Where are you trying to install apt from? FC3 Extras or somewhere else?
Most fedora GPG keys should be available from the fedora-release RPM, in the /usr/share/docs/fedora-release-3/ directory, while the Extras key is available through "rpm --import http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/RPM-GPG-KEY-Fedora-Extras"

As for gpgcheck, did you set this in the main yum.conf or in a seperate extras.repo or something? And why not just download the apt package and "rpm -ivh" it?

See the Fedora FAQ entry (http://www.fedorafaq.org/#gpgsig) for this question. It has a list of commonly needed gpg keys

Thanks for the link Ucfagls, it really helps.

I edited the /etc/yum.conf Dragoon, and i was trying to do that from FC3.
