So now I'm trying the "M-x customize-variable RET
signed-base-updates RET" path.
Yep, but unless package-get.el is loaded you'll probably get an unknown
variable error. You'd be better off...
(setq package-get-require-signed-base-updates nil)
...in your ~/.xemacs/init.el
I still think that this should be made easier.
The code attempts to set a good (note I didn't say "sane") default. It
looks for a gpg/pgp executable and if found, sets the default to
requiring signed package-index files.
If you really want to have PUI (Package User Interface) verify the
signature on the index file and you don't have the right key, then the
easiest thing is add this to your ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf...
(use whatever keyserver you like)
However, IMO, signing the package-index files and verifying them is a
waste of time. In fact, in SXEmacs, we have removed all the pgp code
From the package infrastructure.
we might as well make unauthenticated package installation the
