Hi All,

I have downloaded a RHEL5 release including several Samba RPM files and I want to verify their integrity & authenticity.

It's the first time I am using rpm and ran the two command-lines against a Samba rpm file...

1st Command-Line: : rpm -K samba3-3.6.24-45.el5.x86_64.rpm

samba3-3.6.24-45.el5.x86_64.rpm: (SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) NOT OK (MISSING KEYS: GPG#f4428b1a)

2nd Command-Line: :  rpm -K -v samba3-3.6.24-45.el5.x86_64.rpm

    Header V4 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID f4428b1a
    Header SHA1 digest: OK (0ba26692ea1fa6c5fc19d4bf9ae5b5f6b2f8a5dd)
    MD5 digest: OK (3f09dc73be6069fd79b2a32ee6e3b51a)
    V4 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID f4428b1a

How do I verify the signatures of the Samba RPM? Am I missing some public key file?
