Crossover won't install from the RPM

This article applies to Fedora 12-14 and RHEL/CentOS 5 & 6

This is because Crossover's RPM package is not yet properly signed. Yum used to prompt when a package was unsigned, allowing a user to approve the installation, anyway, but newer versions of yum (Fedora 12+) do not allow unsigned packages to be installed by default.

To work around this problem just add the "--nogpg" option to your yum install command

$ sudo yum install --nogpg /path/to/crossover-pro-demo-9.0.1-1.i386.rpm

Note - with Fedora 15 you should no longer need "--nogpg", but the need remains in RHEL 5 and 6, as well as Fedora 12-14
