Description of problem:
RISC OS archive (spark format) collides with Matroska, and is given preference. It also seems like it would collide with terminfo, but I haven't checked that.

# Acorn archive formats (Disaster prone simpleton, m91dps@ecs.ox.ac.uk)
# I can't create either SPARK or ArcFS archives so I have not tested this stuff
# [GRR:  the original entries collide with ARC, above; replaced with combined
#  version (not tested)]

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute file on a Matroska file

Actual Results:  It says RISC OS archive (spark format)

Expected Results:  It should say Matroska data

Honestly, I have no clue how to create an RISC OS archive in spark
format. If you can help me with this and create a test file I'll be
more than glad. 

Comment 2 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-03-07 20:01:50 UTC
... me neither. I just have a Matroska file.

Comment 3 Radek Vokal 2005-11-21 13:08:02 UTC
I believe this is fixed in rawhide

rvokal@garfield file$ file *.mkv
Matrix.Reloaded.Trailer.mkv: Matroska data
vsshort-aac.mkv:             Matroska data
vsshort-mp3.mkv:             Matroska data
rvokal@garfield file$ rpm -q file
