Description Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2003-11-25 13:15:13 UTC
Description of problem:
I want to add a new entry to the system /usr/share/magic file,
but I cannot figure out where is the master source. The links
to Eric S. Raymond's page at Tuxedo.org seem inoperable. So I am
entering this to RH bugzilla, hopefully the maintainers will know
to whom report new magic numbers or add this at least to Fedora
version of magic(5) file.

Anyways, I want to add a magic number of the "raw" images generated by
 Minolta Dimage digital cameras. These files start with "\000MRM", so
the magic(5) addition should look like this:

# Minolta:  file(1) magic for Minolta Dimage digital cameras
# From Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak <kas@fi.muni.cz>
# description of *.mrw format is at
0       string          \000MRM         Minolta Dimage camera raw
image data

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
Add the above to RedHat/Fedora magic(5) file or push this upstream or
let me know where the master source is. Thanks.

Created attachment 96176 [details]
magic(5) addition

Original post has mangled tabs and newlines, so I am creating the attachment.

I have found that probably Christos Zoulas is the current maintainer
of file(1) and magic(5) - his source tarball is available at
ftp://ftp.astron.com/pub/file/. I have submitted the above entry to
him. Please consider upgrading the Fedora version of file(1) to his

file is pretty routinely updated when available. Resolved to upstream.
