Description Kasper Dupont 2004-01-14 06:17:13 EST
Description of problem:
The development kernel is not signed. There appears to be no way to
verify the integrity of the downloaded file, which means using it
would be a security problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget
2. rpm -K kernel-2.6.1-1.37.i586.rpm
Actual results:
kernel-2.6.1-1.37.i586.rpm: sha1 md5 OK

Expected results:
kernel-2.6.1-1.37.i586.rpm: (sha1) dsa sha1 md5 gpg OK

(or at least a notice that a different key was used to sign this
package, and thus needed to be imported).

Packages in rawhide are not currently signed.
