I am trying to install some software that dependencies that were not there on the system.  As I tried to install elfutils, it gives the following error message.

Public key for elfutils not installed

In my setup, I don't have access to RHN or Satellite server.  Is there a way to resolve it?  Is there some patch that I may download?

If you are comfortable with the source of the rpm (it is from the cd) I believe you can use the --nosignature
option.

you can also use rpm --import <public key> which should be on the cd.

As pointed out above, it's not a resolution issue, it's just about the key, if you are happy then either just use the import option or bypass the signature.
