Newbie's quuestion: RPM package not signed


I installed several packages (include Adobe Flash Player) in Fedora 9 using yum install command, and always failed since these packages are not signed.

Searching internet I found that I should some 'key', but did not find useful instruction on how to do this.

Anyone can tell me use what key shall I import, import to where? How to do this? Thanks a lot for your guide.

For things like flash, I doubt you can get a key, though I could easily be wrong.
In general, you can always use
yum --nogpgcheck install <pkg_name>

This is in the yum man page. Try doing

man yum

Now that I've given you the answer, see if you can find it in the man page--man pages can be obscure at first, but the yum one is less bad than some others.

HINT--to search for a term in the man page use a slash. For example, after typing man yum, while looking at the page do
(even doing /gpgch will bring you to the term)

That's strange since a yum install usually just finds the keys automatically the first time you install a new repository and then try to install something. Are you entering superuser mode properly first with 'su -'? What is the output of 'yum repolist'? For flash have you gone to adobe and downloaded their flash repository rpm it's something like adobe-release-i386?
