Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 806508
"Unsigned packages" popup constantly reappears
Last modified: 2012-05-03 18:50:32 EDT
Description of problem:
I have chromium installed from http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium/. Note that packages in this repo aren't signed.
There's currently an update to chromium. If I try to do the update through apper, it pops up the "Installing unsigned packages" warning dialogue box. If I hit "Yes", it goes away and then immediately pops back up -- indefinitely, as far as I can tell.
Doing the same update through yum works fine, and doing the apper update with chromium un-checked also works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Confirming. I have the same problem.
Still happening (I now have updates to unsigned texlive packages from http://jnovy.fedorapeople.org/texlive/)

... and here's what seems to be the obvious patch to fix things. Untested as yet, but I'll try it out shortly.
Aha, it's actually been fixed in upstream git for about 10 days, with what looks like the same patch plus a bit more bookkeeping
