How do I bypass/ignore the gpg signature checks of apt?

i have a problem in ubuntu hardy:

i use an old hardy server that i may not upgrade with the historical sources: http://de.archive.ubuntu.com hardy

i want to install python2.6 from another source and tried this: http://linuxverzion.blogspot.de/2010/12/install-python-26-on-ubuntu-804-lts.html

Add to /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/python-dev/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
deb-srchttp://ppa.launchpad.net/python-dev/ppa/ubuntu hardy main

#Import the pub key 
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys D81367B9

i changed it to my key but i get the error

gpg: Schlüssel D81367B9 von hkp Server keyserver.ubuntu.com anfordern
gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 7: couldn't connect to host
gpg: Keine gültigen OpenPGP-Daten gefunden.
gpg: Anzahl insgesamt bearbeiteter Schlüssel: 0

is it possible to tell apt, that i dont care if the key exists? i would like to ignore the missing key

(it is a messed up server anyway)

  • it seems like the length of the key is too long – rubo77 Jun 19 '12 at 12:04

I just ignored the error and installed python2.6 I just had to say Yes, install although I don't have the signed key
