A note for RHEL/CentOS 5 Systems, checking of signed RPM’s does not work on these plattform due known bugs in RPM/YUM subsystem. So Please DO NOT USE gpgcheck=1! If you however couldn’t resist trying it (via montiel here), and your system stucks with "Header V3 RSA/SHA1 signature: BAD, key ID e00b8985″, follow these steps:
- Set gpgcheck in your rsyslog.repo file back to 0.
- Run this command to remove the gpg key from your system: rpm –erase gpg-pubkey-e00b8985-512dde96
We highly appriciate any feedback, or bug reports for problems installing these RPM’s.
