Re: [suse-security] Problems getting GPG key recognised by RPM
Thanks a lot for your answer. I have been able to correctly (it seems) load
rainer's signature in rpm. Now I'm still fighting to load Manfred Tremmel's
signature. Whatever I try, rpm always borks with 'error: .... import failed'
but no indication why. I also tried the key on
http://www.iivs.de/schwinde/buerger/tremmel/public_key.asc but no luck :-(.
Why did the rpm people dump the connection with gpg? This is making things a
little (?) complicated. You have to destroy your web of trust in order to
make rpm work?
Anyway, off to some more struggling. Then, finally, I might be able to apt-get
