Description dunwoody 1999-10-07 15:24:39 EDT
Every time I download a .rpm file, I check it with
rpm -K --nopgp.  I downloaded a bunch of rpms today from
ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/, and
some of them failed the rpm -K --nopgp test with the error
"md5 GPG NOT OK".  I am using ncftp-3.0beta19-1 and

I'm wondering if these rpms are really corrupted, or is
there some problem with my test?  Most of the rpms I
downloaded today did pass the rpm -K --nogpgp test just

The following rpms failed the test after I downloaded them:

They're signed with GPG, not PGP. To omit the check, do --nogpg.
(GPG is Gnu Privacy Guard, http://www.gnupg.org/)
