SGI fonts package
Description of problem:
After upgrading to Fedora 21, rpm refuses to install sgi-fonts-1.0-1.noarch.rpm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Uhv sgi-fonts-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
error: unpacking of archive failed: cpio: Archive file not in header
error: sgi-fonts-1.0-1.noarch: install failed
Package installs as expected.
It was possible to install sgi-fonts-1.0-1.noarch.rpm for the last 15 years on Red Hat/Fedora without a problem including the current release Fedora 20 :o/
Might be related to/same as bug 1122004, the package is truly ancient (built with rpm 3.0.3) and does not have compressed filelist, just like 1122004 was built with newer rpm but --nodirtokens.
In any case, its a regression that needs fixing. Florian?
Closer inspection reveals this is indeed a duplicate of 1122004, compatibility with truly ancient package payloads got broken in 4.12 (more or less intentionally, that these packages still exist is kind of surprising)
