fedora8t3: yum install emacs fails
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:20 EST
Description of problem:
yum install emacs
there is a message:
Package emacs-common-22.1-6.fc8.i386.rpm is not signed
and emacs will not load.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have run it twice.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install emacs
emacs fails to install
From some further exploration I find
1. There are a number of other packages e.g. gcc-c++ which are unsigned.
2. Not all packages are signed.
3. This check can be turned off but it is not clear how.
The error message is extremely unhelpful, as I have been running yum update and
installed a lot of packages, and now I want to add some more and they will not
load because of this.
There should be a more helpful message including instructions about the options.
This is particularly so as it does not happen with Fedora 7.
I find in yum help what is needed is
yum --nogpgcheck install emacs
The error message talks about signing and not gpgcheck. It needs a connection
which is in the mind of the experienced. Please rectify this in yum.
