Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 533026
installing unsigned rpm file fails
Last modified: 2009-11-14 13:42:38 EST
Description of problem:
I tried to install a yum repo (rpmfusion-free) from an rpm. This fails immediately after kpackagekit asks me to confirm the transaction (which is after kpackagekit simulates the transaction).
kpackagekit presents me with a small window titled "Failed to install file - kpackagekit" with the contents "An unknown error happened."
I had this problem with the rpmfusion-free rpm from http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration - it makes no difference whether I open it in konqueror or download and run kpackagekit on the rpm from dolphin.
I also tried yumdownloader'ing a file from rawhide and installing it from dolphin. This fails in the same way.

I'm not sure whether I botched clearing the needinfo flag, but shouldn't this actually be Closed -> Upstream?
