Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 601594
Unsigned updates can't be installed
Last modified: 2010-09-14 08:34:46 EDT
Description of problem:
In rawhide it's not uncommon that updates are not signed. kpackagekit won't let the user install them. Authentication missing?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select updates and press Apply button (a command board appears in the systray stating: "An untrusted package is installed. The package <package name> from rawhide is untrusted")
2. Press Continue button in the additional packages dialog (a message appears stating: "You are about to install unsigned packages can compromise your system, as it is impossible to verify if the software came from a trusted source. Are you sure you want to continue installation?")
3. Press Yes-button (a dialog appears stating that kpackagekit is "Waiting for service to start") The service (?) will never start.
Unsigned packages can't be installed
Unsigned packages can be installed (after authentication?)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
kpackagekit 0.6.1 solves this issue. I suppose that this report can be closed.
Thanks for the nice work! It seems that kpackagekit is on it's way back :-)
