Enabling new signing key Fedora 8 and 9

If for whatever reason you’re still maintaining an old install of Fedora 8 or 9 and need to get updates with yum you might find your way to this page – Enabling new signing key which contains links to download the new signing keys. Sadly the page hasn’t been updated in a while and the key rpm links are broken. You’ll probably find them with a Google search but might end up with suspicious files which sha1sum doesn’t match the sum given on Fedora’s own page

You can however grab the correct file direct from Fedora’s own archives

Here for fc8: fedora-release-8-6.transition.noarch.rpm
Here for fc9: fedora-release-9-5.transition.noarch.rpm
