Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 73255
up2date-config disables "Use GPG ..." prematurely

Description of Problem:
In up2date-config, if you select "Do not install packages after retrieval", the
option to select or unselect "Use GPG to verify package integrity" is disabled
(as it is under the installation options area). This is not appropriate as the
GPG option controls not only installation but also downloading. These should be

modifying the package retrieval option or manually edit
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date, everything works properly with GPG turned off and do
not install after retrieval turned on.

Should be fixed in 2.9.66.
the useGPG button has been moved to it's
own frame now "Package Verification" since it
applies both to downloaded packages and
packages going to be installed (say, pointed
at via --packagedir, hence not downloaded)
This is definitely fixed in 8.0.
