I am trying to install an AVR32 toolchain so that I may create and compile custom kernels.

I have installed Fedora 7 in a VM and everything looks fine there.

Following the Atmel instructions, I created a file.. /etc/yum.repos.d/avr32.repo containing the following...
[AVR32 GNU Toolchain]
name=AVR32 GNU Toolchain
baseurl=http://www.atmel.no/avr32/fedora/$releasever
enabled=1

when I run >yum groupinstall "AVR Linux Development" I get to a point where it stops and says "public key for avr32-linux-binutils-2.17... is not installed". I can't find any mention in the documentation of a "public key" needed to be installed.

Dead end.... detour

Next I download and start buildroot. I get to the step "make source" and it starts downloading file after file from the internet until it reaches mtd-utils-1.1.0.tar.bz2. At this point it is unable to ftp from the appropriately named host "ftp.infradead.org". It tries over and over without success until I finally cancel it.

2 dead ends.... no more visible detours.

Anybody have suggestions where I go from here please?

What "key" do I need to complete the yum install?

Can I get that mtd-utils-1.1.0.tar.bz2 file elsewhere and just put it in the correct directory. Would the "make source" be happy then and skip the ftp from infradead?

EDIT.....
*** Never mind... infradead has been resurrected! :D
*** Still curious about public key to load tools from yum.

add gpgcheck=0 to your avr32.repo file as a quick hack

That worked -- and is much less a hack than putting the gpgcheck=0 in the etc/yum.conf file.
