Description Graham Cobb (reporter) maemo.org 2007-11-12 16:14:40 UTC
EXPECTED OUTCOME: Having installed the chinook SDK, I then use apt-get to
install a package into the scratchbox environment (e.g. intltools, although any
will do).

ACTUAL OUTCOME: apt-get says:

WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
Install these packages without verification [y/N]?

To which I have to answer "y".

This breaks automatic installations, such as MUD uses, unless apt is told to
ignore the error using:

echo "APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated 1 ;" >>/etc/apt/apt.conf

OTHER COMMENTS: I looked for a keyring package to install to allow
authentication but there doesn't seem to be one.  Neither is there a version of
gnupg in the SDK.

Hi Graham & Soumya, is this still an issue?

Setting HIGH visibility.
Comment 5 Quim Gil nokia 2009-01-08 17:20:12 UTC

Janne's Comment #3 suggests this was already fixed a while ago.
Comment 6 Graham Cobb (reporter) maemo.org 2009-01-09 21:35:26 UTC
Sorry, I am not in a position to re-install a Maemo 4.x dev environment at the
moment. As I can't help, I have no objection to closing this.

I will open a new bug if the problem is still present in the 5.0 SDK when I get
around to testing that!

FIXED, then. Thanks!
