<_blah_> i think on http://www.fedoralegacy.org/download/ where it tells you
          what to put in your yum.conf, it should include gpgcheck=1
<TheDom> _blah_: report a bug, otherwise it'll get forgotten about. I don't
          think Eric is around much at the moment.
<_blah_> file in bugzilla?
<_blah_> is there a website component, or keyword?
<TheDom> just "General"

This will only work for the FL version of yum, AFAIK.  And we haven't released
all the FL yum versions yet.  Unless someone proves me wrong, I'd say this 
should wait until FL publishes a yum for all RHL versions (for the RHL yum.conf)
and/or FC1 (for the Fedora Core yum.conf).  Anyone disagree?

Perhaps relevant: gpgcheck=1 didn't work for me:  I tried to use yum to upgrade
from FC1 to FC2.  (I was unable to escape depencency hell and didn't like the
fact that some stuff was unsigned; should have followed the advice to use
anaconda.)  Several of the packages yum tried to install didn't have signatures.
 Sorry, I lost the logs when I reinstalled from scratch, so I can't offer
specifics. I was using the redhat.com master site and/or the stanford.edu mirror.

re: comment #1

if it works for fc1, then i vote for just updating that yum.conf entry.  it
might also be nice to tell people how to import the gpg key.

re: comment #2

all fedora packages published by redhat should be gpg signed.  if you found
packages that were not gpg signed then you have bigger issues.

Comment 1 rob 2005-04-27 10:54:31 EDT
how about adding gpgcheck=1 to these documents?

Comment 2 Eric Jon Rostetter 2005-04-27 14:42:08 EDT
Done (added to yum-fc1.php and yum-fc2.php, not to /download/ as originally
asked in this bug).  Review, and if acceptible, then close the bug ticket.
