Description of Problem:
right after install, I wanted to rpm -i kernel-source. 

RPM complains Warning: ... Header V3 DSA key no signature Key ID .,..

Might be a kernel-source archive problem rather than an rpm problem.

You're using rpm-4.1 and installing a signed package
w/o the correspomding key (signature checking is
now mandatory).

Look for the BETA-GPG-KEY file, import by doing
	rpm --import BETA-GPG-KEY
Verify the pubkey install by doing
	rpm -qi gpg-pubkey
Comment 2 Olaf Schnapauff 2002-07-14 17:50:10 EDT
This is a freshly installed system. This key import then _must_ be done
automatically during install and cannot be left to the user manually later. This
will a) potentially comprimise security b) confuse the hell out of most people.
Is this at least done automatically for the Non-Beta Key? Anyway, any system
delivered signature key must be imported on install.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2002-07-14 18:00:33 EDT
Then install with --nosignature to disable
mandatory signature checking.
