Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2008-10-01 11:06:48 EDT
Looking at this, it is due to either some pecularity of gzip, or the differing timestamps on the created gzip files. The files inside the gzip match sha1sums, but the gz files themselves do not, which is why rpm is throwing this error.

The obvious fix would be to not gzip these files, but it would also make the perl package notably larger (2.4M gzipped, 11M uncompressed).

I think we can fix this by doing:

touch -r Artistic Changes*.gz

Thus, giving them all the same timestamp. I'm testing this out now.

... and I was wrong. This doesn't do the trick, but kasal has a better plan. :)

Seems my fix works! ;-)
Fixed in perl-5.10.0-46.fc10
