abrtd: Package isn't signed with proper key

Description

abrtd is the automated bug reporting tool daemon on Linux. In some cases, your Linux system logs may indicate that an Aspera program has crashed but that the core files have been deleted, such as in the output here:

Check for abrtd

On RedHat derived Linux distributions (OEL, CentOS, etc), abrtd is the default tool for handling core dumps (among other functions).

You can check to see if this is the case on your platform by running the following command:

# cat /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern

Sample output might look like this:

|/usr/libexec/abrt-hook-ccpp %s %c %p %u %g %t e

The above indicates that crashed process output is piped to abrtd.

On RedHat derived platforms (OEL, CentOS, etc) abrtd itself will delete core files from software installed from an unsigned rpm package. You can modify this behavior by following the instructions below.

Environment

Operating System: Linux

 

Instructions

Locate and open the following file:

  • /etc/abrt/abrt-action-save-package-data.conf

The value for OpenGPGCheck should be changed from yes to no.

OpenGPGCheck = no

It might also be necessary to change the value of limit coredumpsize:

limit coredumpsize unlimited

 

After editing the file, restart the process with the following command:

# service abrtd restart
