Description Christian Krause 2006-05-21 22:24:28 UTC
Description of problem:

I've checked the integrity of my system using rpm -V and there was a problem
with the pnmdepth binary:

Package netpbm-progs-10.33-1.fc5:
SM5....T.   /usr/bin/pnmdepth

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC5, netpbm-progs-10.33-1.fc5

How reproducible:
Unknown - I don't know, after which update the problem occured.
Please note that his problem occured on all of my FC5 machines, so that a hard
disc error cannot be the source of this problem

After I removed the package and re-installed it, the binary is correct.

Comment 1 Christian Krause 2006-05-25 02:53:53 UTC

It seems, that this file was changed again - again on several hosts. So there
must be some entity which alters this file sometimes. If a script or a cronjob
does changes in a binary file then this problem should be taken seriously. ;-)

Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2006-05-25 03:53:49 UTC
There was a bug in netpbm-10.32 such that it contained dangling symlink
affecting pnmdepth because of a typo in the upstream Makefile. The pnmdepth
utility was replaced by a symlink to pamdepth correctly since 10.33. The only
thing that I can guess from the top of my head is that for some reason you have
installed both 10.32 and 10.33 netpbms on your system that conflict -> might
make rpm -V fail. What does rpm -q netpbm say?

Comment 3 Christian Krause 2006-05-25 14:37:39 UTC
No, there is only one package installed:

root@:~# rpm -q netpbm

Where can I get the previous version of netpbm-progs to compare the binaries of
the pnmdepth program (I've saved the file with the wrong md5 sum)?

Comment 4 Christian Krause 2006-05-25 21:07:07 UTC
I've found an explanation for this problem:
prelink changes the link to a regular file

Because I'm not sure whether this is a problem of prelink or netpbm-progs, I'll
wait for some response from the prelink people until I'll close this bug.

Comment 5 Jindrich Novy 2006-09-21 10:51:26 UTC
Ok, closing this one as I don't see any rpm -V problems any more with the
current rawhide netpbm-progs.
