Comment 1 Will Woods 2007-10-27 16:10:35 UTC
Pre-release packages are not signed. We made a mistake in changing the default
repositories from 'development' to 'fedora' and 'updates' (which require signed
packages) before the final F8 package set was ready.

Once F8 is completed we will sign the packages for the final release and this
problem will go away.

Until that happens, either:
1) Switch back to using the 'development' repo and disable 'fedora' and 'updates'
2) Disable gpg checking on the 'fedora' repo.

Comment 7 John Fletcher 2007-10-27 17:00:25 UTC
You have marked various other bugs which I have submitted as duplicates of this.

I am not convinced of this because some of them were run with --nogpgcheck 
or else the presence of --nogpgcheck made no difference.

I have been able to overcome the no signature problem with --nogpgcheck and I
believe there is a different problem with the installation of e.g. ginac and

There is evidence of this in the log files attached to the other (discarded)

I will not submit any further such reports - I will monitor what comes of it.

Comment 9 Will Woods 2007-10-27 17:12:04 UTC
I'd suggest changing the repository files (as discussed in comment #1) and then

yum clean all

it looks like you might have gotten some bad/mixed up metadata or
half-downloaded files.

hope that helps.

Comment 10 Dick Franks 2007-10-29 16:15:55 UTC
It did.

Selected develpment repo and cleaned out metadata, now ok.

All packages in rawhide should be signed now leading up to the F8 release.
