Failure to install rpm that pulls down the bootstrap information for using the rpmforge repo.
Proper installation of the rpm that pulls down the bootstrap information for using the rpmforge repo.
Note that Dag's key has already been imported into rpm.
Also note that this bug is preventing me from installing rsyslog 5.8 from source. The latest version of rsyslog I can find via rpm for CentOS 5.6 is rsyslog 3.x, and we need something much more current. But I'm stuck on trying to get gnutls-bin installed so that I can build and install rsyslog 5.8, and I can't find any version of gnutls-bin anywhere on any of the main CentOS or EPEL repos. So, I need either RPMForge or RPMFusion to get that, and of the two I trust RPMForge much more than I do RPMFusion.
The package you are trying to install requires a newer rpm that handles xz-compressed payloads.
