Perhaps this is also concerning the makeSUSEdvd problems with RC3.
Already posted to the factory list.

Transfered to bug 166011
There I see some info:
- (once) create a GPG key for signing the modified source (or use an
existing key)

- adapt the packages file with "=Cks: SHA1 <sha1sum>" entries of the RPMs

- add META and KEY entries to /content, see URL above

- sign /content (gpg --detach-sign -a content)
- create /content.key (the above public key used to sign /content)
(gpg --export -a -u keyid > content.key)

Is there anybody that can explain to me in babysteps on how to do that?
I have never used gpg.
So I suppose I do the following:
`gpg --gen-key`, 5, 2048, 0, y, name and email, passphrase (Or must this
be blank?), generate the key. I then have my key.

Now what?
