Description Féliciano Matias 2003-08-18 06:28:07 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
Packages created in /var/spool/repackage by up2date are unreadable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable rollback in up2date (enableRollbacks=1 in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date)
2. update a package with up2date
3. check the package in /var/spool/repackage.
For example :
rpm -q -p /var/spool/repackage/metacity-2.4.55-5.i386.rpm
error: /var/spool/repackage/metacity-2.4.55-5.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: BAD,
key ID 897da07a

Actual Results:  The same problem append with /usr/share/doc/rpm-*/BETA-GPG-KEY
imported in rpm or not.

Expected Results:  A readable rpm package.

Try reading the packages with "--nodigest --nosignature". 

The packages in /var/spool/repackage are repackaged from
the files on the file system, and are _not_ resigned, but
they do maintain the original package signature. 

They have to be read with the commandline options (turning
off dsa and gpg verification) above.
