Thread: Signature verification for Repository Sun_Java failed

  1. #1

    Unhappy Signature verification for Repository Sun_Java failed

    I keep getting a KDE notification saying that "A security trust relationship is not present" and that the "Signature verification for Repository Sun_Java failed". How can I shut this up? These are the instructions I followed to install real Java but there was no mention of any encryption keys. I couldn't find anything through Google on shutting it up either, and it's sending me round the twist! Other things about Linux/KDE have been gradually irritating me of late but nothing more than this constant annoyance has made me seriously ponder switching to Mac as much as this before.

    Remove the repo.
    You can not install sun java from any repo, license change.
    Use manual method described on link, or use different java distributor.

    Regardless of which repo I choose to use to install Java, is there no way to tell the package manager to shut up and stop complaining about the signature? Installing Java manually is going to result it one thing: an out of date, forgotten, and insecure, Java runtime environment. At least with a repository it'll be kept up-to-date.

    Noticing that the offending message was coming from Apper, I've turned off "Show a message in a popup" in System Notification Configuration for the "A transaction error occurred" setting and - so far (fingers crossed - it seems to have shut it up well and good :-) My need to grudgingly switch to Mac to shut my brother up has been averted for a while yet.

    Again: Sun's java (jre) is not published in any repository in anywhere, forget it. You have to
    install it manually, and download it manually yourself. Remove that repository and the error will
    disappear.


    And again, there are other javas, from other vendors, that you can install from the standard oss repo.

    My bad... I remember trying several things to get "real Java" installed under openSUSE and that the URL I linked above was simply a guide to install it manually. The "Sun_Java" repo I currently have looks like it must have been - at some stage - an official repo (Index of /repositories/Java:/packages/openSUSE_12.2). I can't remember how I found out about that but I obviously found it somewhere. I wonder why it's still available if it's apparently so bad nobody should use it anymore?

    BTW, the various oss Java offerings have issues with the software I'm using, so I have to have the genuine article.

    Any repository with "orgy" in its name isn't likely to stand the test of time. The whole Java licensing situation really annoys me, and yes, I know it's not Linux's fault, and Oracle bear much of the blame... but it could be more straight forward than it currently is. Perhaps some "official" guidance from openSUSE on which repositories to use/trust or an official manual install guide would be a massive benefit to us poor unfortunate souls who need "real" java.

    So apparently openSUSE can still distribute Java? Why not put it in some semi-official repository? When I used Debian such things were kept in /non-free (though I don't know whether even Debian distributes Java any more). So if Sun Java can be hosted by openSUSE with strange-named repos, why not go the next level and make it official, and stop all this chicanery users have to go through?
