Using yum with unsigned and corrupted packages.



Some of the packages I'm getting from the repositories are missing
signatures (no big deal) or don't match their checksums. (Big deal, in
my books)

If one is using yum, one incident of either of these stops the upgrade
cold.  (Good thing/bad thing.)  The good thing is that nothing gets
installed that shouldn't.  The bad thing is that it rejects all the
other packages too.   

Is there a way to proceed with the install, automatically ignoring the
unsigned packages and excluding the checksum missing packages ?

Is there a way to have yum query the user for permission to install each
package  (and not kill all of them if the user rejects one) ?  BTW this
was a pet peeve of mine with up2date as well.
