Comment 1 Suzanne Hillman 2004-06-09 13:59:35 EDT
Couple questions. Does this still happen? And, when you downloaded teh
package manually, can you compare the md5sum against what is listed in
the errata for that package?

Finally, what happens when you do an up2date -d --src - this ought to
just download, and not actually try to install.
Comment 2 Ed Weller 2004-06-09 18:39:44 EDT
Okay, I'm new to Linux and managed to confuse things.
First... The up2date failures continue to happen even with the -d --
src options.  The message refers to "pam-0.75-46.7.3.src.rpm" which I 
am now thinking is different from that which I attempted to 
download "pam-0.75-46.7.3.i386.rpm".

Here is what happens when I attempt to download and install "pam-0.75-
[root@chvpklnxgdm root]# tar xvf rhn-packages.tar
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
[root@chvpklnxgdm root]# md5sum rhn-packages/pam-0.75-46.7.3.i386.rpm

[root@chvpklnxgdm root]#

Comment 3 Suzanne Hillman 2004-08-09 11:43:36 EDT
Mmm. Well, if the package doesn't finish downloading, then the package
md5sum will automatically be wrong...

I am, however, confused by why you are dealing with a tarball when you
are up2dating? You ought not to be...

What do you mean by 'downloaded it manually'?
