Thanks for all the info. I was able to get apt working again by manually 
installing the following from


The babelfish Russion to English translator seems to work well. This will 
allow me to read the blog that you listed below and read the Russion 
postings at I don't mind doing this.

I don't think there are many folks on this mailing list since it has almost 
zero activity but I am a big Alt Linux fan (because I think Sisyphus is 
wonderful) and I'd like to continue to have access to help when I run into 
issues. Again, I appreciate your response to my post.

Yes, the signature was changing (with build process).

Please download and install updated apt-conf binary package by
hand, then apt should work again.

Sorry, we should have announced this in community-en@ too --
didn't know there _are_ Sisyphus users here.

If grokking automated translations (like
or's) is OK with you, please look at those of
-- we sorta maintain the mine map there.

In short, after the key has been changed, there was also:

* an alert that using Linux 2.6.12's vfat driver in sync mode
  is especially deadly for Flash media (syncs are being done on
  virtually every operation, rapidly starving FAT area)
* xorg upgrade could break *dm logins -- /etc/X11/xinit.d/xkb
  would better get replaced with a script pasted in
  (well could have been fixed already, don't know)
* xorg upgrade to 6.9RC will render current version of ATI fglrx
  incompatible (updated version should ship at the end of the
  month).  Brave souls can join free "ati" driver testing,
  since the updated one should support R300-based cards too
* firefox-1.0.6-alt3 is broken [updated since]
* etcnet-0.7.11-alt1 is broken [too]
* DejaVu fonts v1.13 has broken DejaVu Sans Mono; upstream's
  notified but it's proposed to stick with 1.12 for the time being

PS: I'm quite sorry for such a request but how many of us are
here, actually?  Maybe we could consider bridging things somehow.
