Description redhat-bugzilla 1998-11-09 13:10:54 UTC
When 'rpm --verify' is runned as a user which cannot
read a particular file (i.e. not as root) the output
indicates that the md5-sum of the file has changed:

[noa@brecht bugzilla-2.0]$ rpm --verify util-linux
..5.....   /bin/login

The user should somehow be notified that rpm couldn't
caluculate the md5-sum instead of just flagging it
different.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1998-12-05 19:10:59 UTC
Fixed in rpm-2.5.6.

bash$ ./rpm -Vf /bin/login
..?.....   /bin/login
..?.....   /usr/bin/chfn
..?.....   /usr/bin/chsh
..?.....   /usr/bin/newgrp
