This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 2 Jan Kratochvil 2007-01-22 08:07:50 EST
It has been fixed by rpm-4.4.2-37.
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2007-02-20 23:17:31 EST
Hmmm, I doubt that the problem is fixed, certainly not so if neon is used for http transport.

Checking ...

$ rpm2cpio http://ftp.jaist.ac.jp/pub/Linux/Fedora/core/4/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/fedora-release-4-
rpm2cpio: ./rpmio_internal.h:301: fdGetFp: Assertion `fd && fd->magic == 0x04463138' failed.

Yes, not fixed ... reopening
Comment 5 Jan Kratochvil 2007-02-21 03:24:34 EST
You are right, it got fixed for RHEL5 as it no longer uses neon, it should be
ported to FC (or some other bugfix found).
Comment 6 Panu Matilainen 2007-06-27 08:29:47 EDT
Fixed in Fedora since 4.4.2-43 (and thus in FC7 and rawhide) by not using neon.
