removing rpm imported gpg-key

While install the puppet dashboard, I noticed puppetlabs yum repo changed from using "http://yum.puppetlabs.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-reductive" to "http://yum.puppetlabs.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-puppet" causing yum to fail on the key import. I had run the key import manually couple times before I realized, yum was complaining about a different key.

Below is how I got around to removing all of the imported gpgkeys:

Find GPG keys and owners:

rpm -qa gpg-pubkey\* --qf "%{version}-%{release} %{summary}\n"

Remove corresponding GPG Key.

rpm -e gpg-pubkey-8347a27f-4afe0f12 --allmatches

Replacing sysklogd with rsyslog

If you need to replace old sysklogd with recent rsyslog on centos, `rpm -e --nodeps sysklogd` is rather kludgy as yum will remove initscripts, upon which most of the system is dependent on. However, it is possible to install and remove via the yum shell in one go, which resolves the dependency issues.

# yum shell
> install rsyslog
> remove sysklogd
> run
> quit

makedepend on CentOS

Recently I've had to provide a developer with the makedep tool. It is available via imake rpm. However, it is deprecated and when installing automake and autoconf, it should automatically get installed as it is a required package by autoconf.

nsis rpm for redhat 4 (update 5)

Recently built an rpm for a client that needed to install nsis-2.29 on several redhat boxes. nsis-2.28 for centos/fedora is readily available at repo.calcforge.org .

I downloaded the centos source rpm and rebuilt it for redhat4 as described below:
