From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-AT; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
"yum update" or "yum install" fails with the following error-messages:

[root@kermit root]# yum update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Released Updates

error: rpmdbNextIterator: skipping h#     129 Header V3 DSA signature:
BAD, key ID 4f2a6fd2

Last Message several times.

I imported the fedora gpg-key into gpg and rpm. "rpm --rebuilddb" does
not fix the problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum --update, or yum --install without an argument

Actual Results:  see Error Messages above

Expected Results:  update the actual rpm-files or install new ones...

Where did you get the key> If from a keyserver,
you will need to use gpg to import the pubkye,
edit out the key server signature, and re-export the key
before importing.

I tried a rpm --rebuilddb several times, after that, it works.

This smells like the dangling ptr, fixed in rpm-4.2.2-0.6.
