Description Steve Falco 2006-03-24 14:07:16 UTC
On an FC5 system, I downloaded mlocate-0.12-1.2.src.rpm and did the following steps:

rpm2cpio mlocate-0.12-1.2.src.rpm > ml
cpio -idv < ml

I got the error message "cpio: premature end of file"

If I do this on FC4, it works fine.  I did a cmp on the output of the rpm2cpio
for FC4 and FC5, and they matched perfectly, so the problem clearly lies in cpio.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): cpio-2.6-14.FC5

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce: shown above
Actual results: error message

Expected results: no error message

Additional info: "ldd /bin/cpio" gives the following:
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0x005bf000)
        libnsl.so.1 => /lib/libnsl.so.1 (0x00251000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x007fc000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x007db000)
