My ongoing experiences with Ubuntu, and later Mythbuntu, as a media center with MythTV. I'm also using the system for a virtual machine server, a mediawiki server and a general all around home infrastructure base.

apt-get update missing GPG key

I was seeing the following error when running "Check" on the update-manager, or 'apt-get update':
GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net jaunty Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 248DD1EEBC8EBFE8
Answer, kudos to Gentoo Blog:
% gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv 248DD1EEBC8EBFE8
gpg: requesting key BC8EBFE8 from hkp server subkeys.pgp.net
gpg: key BC8EBFE8: public key "Launchpad PPA for Network-manager" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)
% gpg --export --armor 248DD1EEBC8EBFE8 | sudo apt-key add -
OK
