Debian/Ubuntu repository key?

Hi,

 

This is my first question here. I want to install Zenoss on a Ubuntu machine, and the Zenoss-Stack option seems lovely. There's only one problem: If I follow the instructions, add the repository and try to install from it, aptitude complains that the package is untrusted and may compromise my system.

 

Usually, with such repository, there's a key one can download and "apt-key add" to prevent this message (and assure authenticity of the package). When I searched the web for one, it seems that there used to be one in the repository, but it's no longer there.

 

Indeed, such keys should not be kept in the repository; but does a key exist? If so, where is it? If not, is there a reason why not?

 

Thanks,

Shai.

    Hi. I'm bumping up this thread, I'm trying to write a Puppet module to install zenoss-stack via apt, but to make it clean I need a publicly available apt key of the repository. Google seems to be not very helpful so far...

    Thanks

    I can't really help with your specific request, but I think it may be useful to know that Zenoss 4 when released will not be a stack release, and may not support Debian.

    Hey if you use these repository(see below) u will no have issues with key, the repo is on the installation guide.

     

    5.2.1. Using apt (Command Line)
    1. Add the Zenoss repository to the /etc/apt/sources.list file. Add the following line at the bottom of the file:
    # Zenoss repository
         deb http://dev.zenoss.org/deb main stable
    2. Enter the following commands:
    apt-get update
    apt-cache search zenoss-stack
    This should return:
    zenoss-stack - Zenoss Stack with all requirements.
    3. Enter this command to install the Zenoss stack:
    apt-get install zenoss-stack
    Zenoss is installed in the /usr/local/zenoss directory.
    4. Start Zenoss with this command:
    # /etc/init.d/zenoss-stack start

    

     

     

    --------------------

    PD: there is not more debian supported zenoss stack or there no will be more zenoss-stack at all?

    Hi Juan, actually that's the repository I'm using. AFAIK, if you use non-Debian / non-Ubuntu apt repository, you have to add the repository key in order to avoid to type "Yes" once you install zenoss-stack (or to disable that check globally into apt configuration).

    Re: Debian/Ubuntu repository key?

    the thing is that i dont remember to add any key, i mean, i just intalled from the repo and nothing more, let me try with another equipment and

     

    I found this key on the download section, and i dont know it that whay u want

    http://community.zenoss.org/docs/DOC-3240?noregister Look for rpm based distro

     

    PD: after write that, i try out the repo on debian squeeze machine without any errors,and on some ubuntu machine with i think that 10.10 ubuntu, and nothing there is not error with the key

     

    and i thing that the key does not exist at all, because the installation guide have no info about it

     

    if you really need to verify the package integrity, download the binary files and make the checksum test

    Re: Debian/Ubuntu repository key?

    Juan, this is what I get (and usually get if I don't "apt-key" add the repo key):

     

    ----

    # aptitude install zenoss-stack

    The following NEW packages will be installed:

      zenoss-stack

    0 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded.

    Need to get 0 B/110 MB of archives. After unpacking 387 MB will be used.

    WARNING: untrusted versions of the following packages will be installed!

     

     

    Untrusted packages could compromise your system's security.

    You should only proceed with the installation if you are certain that

    this is what you want to do.

     

     

      zenoss-stack

     

     

    Do you want to ignore this warning and proceed anyway?

    To continue, enter "Yes"; to abort, enter "No":

    ----

     

    Debian 6.0.4 here

    Re: Debian/Ubuntu repository key?

    Any chance Core 4 will be shipped for Debian based distributions too?

    Re: Debian/Ubuntu repository key?

    As far as I am aware, Debian is not a planned platform for the Core 4 release. I'd suspect with a enough community pushback it could be, but as of right now I believe it is planned to be RHEL5 variants only.

    Re: Debian/Ubuntu repository key?

    The ZCA is working with Zenoss to see if we can get a community effort on packaging for platforms other than Red Hat EL5 derivatives, but I don't currently know how successful we'll be. It's not easy to build. It's also going to be a bit of a new model, Community CORE builds - so I'm not sure how "official" they'll be.

    Re: Debian/Ubuntu repository key?

    jmp242, this is great news indeed.

     

    I've never installed zenoss-core other than using the stack, and I don't see any "src" package on the sourceforge page... how hard is to get zenoss core running from SVN sources? Any document describing steps involved?

    Shai, Your preaching to the choir . Many community members have expressed this same points as well to Zenoss...

    Re: Debian/Ubuntu repository key?

    Alexander, you can certainly pull the source from SVN. I am not aware of any official docs for 4x, but here was the one from 3.2.1: http://dev.zenoss.com/trac/browser/tags/zenoss-3.2.1/inst/docs/INSTALL_Source.txt

     

    That said, I've made some vein attempts at getting core 4 to install from source on both rhel5 and rhel6 without success. (I'm not much of a linux guy, so it could be myown shortcomings).

     

    If your able to get it to install, I'd be very instereted in documentating the steps.
