Forgot about something :(

when getting the packages, ./latex.sh, /amstex.sh, etc.  

==========================================================
[students@localhost kerTeX]$ ./graphics@xxxxxxxx install

KERTEX_VERSION=0.9999.3.0
KERTEX_HOST=linux-x86_64-3.2.10-3.fc16.x86_64
KERTEX_SHELL=/bin/sh
KERTEX_BINDIR=/usr/local/bin/kertex
KERTEX_LIBDIR=/usr/local/share/kertex
KERTEX_MANDIR=/usr/local/share/kertex/man
KERTEX_USER0=root
KERTEX_GROUP0=wheel

graphics@xxxxxxxx:  latex: FOUND.
cd: Fatal error: Certificate verification: Not trusted
This is TeX, kerTeX C Version 3.1415926
! I can't find file `graphics.ins'.
<*> &latex graphics.ins

Please type another input file name:

==========================================================
To solve this:  
cd: Fatal error: Certificate verification: Not trusted

Run from command line 
$ cat >~/.lftp/rc <<EOT
> set ssl:verify-certificate no
> EOT
$  

and retry the installation of the packages.  I knew I forgot something.  

Happy TeXing & LaTeXing
