Re: packages cannot be authenticated



I had already installed the debian keyring (sorry I neglected to mention
that), and these are the keys it installed (apt-key list):

1024R/1DB114E0
1024D/4F368D5D
1024D/2D230C5F


The problem persisted - however, now it doesn't happen.  I had apt-get
reinstall a couple of packages that consistantly produced the error
message yesterday, and I don't get the error message today.  Go figure.

Try installing the debian-keyring package if it's missing. Otherwise,
these are the keys I have in my keyring:

 1024R/1DB114E0
 1024D/4F368D5D
 1024D/B5F5BBED
 1024D/2D230C5F
