Yum GPG Keys
.repo file for the mplug Yum repository, there are two lines about GPG;
gpgcheck=1 turns on the feature that GPG signatures must be present and valid for packages downloaded from that repo or
yum will not install them.
gpgkey=http://macromedia.mplug.org/FEDORA-GPG-KEY provides the location where the GPG key file can be found. Simply download the key and run
rpm --import FEDORA-GPG-KEY (as root, of course) to install the key into RPM.
There is older documentation on the Internet that will tell you to run
gpg --import keyfile either prior to or in stead of
rpm --import keyfile. That's for way older versions of RPM and no longer applies; it is only necessary (and desireable) to install the key into RPM.
