Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 15085
kernel update rpm md5 not OK
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
I curently run RedHat 6.1. I downloaded the security update under
RHSA-2000:037-05 from your errata site. This included the kernel rpm
(for i586), source, header, etc.
Before I began the upgrade, I ran an integrity check (rpm -K --nopgp
kernel* etc.) of the downloaded files. The rpms report out: md5 GPG NOT
OK. I downloaded the files several times (and used a mirror for the
kernel), andthe failures are consistent.
For the heck of it, I tried to upgrade the kernel source and headers
anyway, and got a segmentation fault. I run rpm-3.0.4-0.48.
Is this a problem with the files at your site, or am I doing something very
wrong? This isn't my first kernel upgrade, and I followed your kernel
Do you have the Red Hat GPG key in your key ring?
I ran --nopgp. I was doing md5 checking only.
In any event, I imported the keys into my ring, and ithe rpm -K ran clean.
I guess I'm confused. I thought that running --nopgp bypassed the key check,
and just checked the md5 checksum.
Any idea on the segmentation fault when upgrading the headers and source?
You need --nogpg
as well as --nopgp
if you do not want to check any public keys.
