Description Fred New 2003-10-17 16:55:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031014

Description of problem:
After downloading a package to install, the tui up2date will abort if the
package being installed isn't signed; whereas, the gui up2date will ask if you
want to install the package anyway.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start gnome terminal.
2.  su -
3.  up2date -u tcl  (The tcl package doesn't "have a GPG signature".)

Actual Results:  Fetching package list for channel: rawhide...
<much removed>
tcl-8.3.5-93.i386.rpm:      ########################## Done.
The package tcl-8.3.5-93 is not signed with a GPG signature.  Aborting...
Package tcl-8.3.5-93 does not have a GPG signature.

Expected Results:  I would expect the tui up2date to react the same as the gui
up2date and ask me if I would like to continue.  (It would also be nice if the
message also told me "sha1 md5 OK" like rpm -K does.)

Okay, I can see how you can get around this problem by using the --nosig
parameter.  I should have done a little more homework be opening this bug.  I'll
leave this open as a possible enhancement, though.

closed as notabug, because the cmdline version is designed to be
as non-interactive as possible, and prompting for this would
run counter to that.
