A workaround is to use up2date-config, unclick on "Use GPG to verify package
integrity" under Retrieval / Installation and save.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2005-04-27 19:55:22 EDT
Does up2date download it or grab it from /usr/share/rhn/...?
Comment 3 Martin Welss 2005-04-28 03:22:50 EDT
good point! it justs asks if I want to install the key, but does not say from
where... so it might be from /usr/share/rhn
Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2005-06-27 11:58:28 EDT

It imports from /usr/share/rhn which is not a bug and doesnt have a chance of
being spoofed
