It would be handy if yum localinstall disabled the GPG verification on the
packages passed to it on the command line, but still enforced it on packages
installed from repositories.
Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2007-11-03 09:55:40 EDT
Automating that change just makes the likelihood of someone bein exploited greater.

If you are localinstalling and want to make sure gpgchecking is off there are 2

1. yum --nogpgcheck localinstall foo.rpm
2. edit /etc/yum.conf and under [main] set gpgcheck=0

In the 2nd case that'll disable it ONLY for the global case and any repo which
has gpgcheck=1 will continue gpg checking
