Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 223297
file does not recognize OpenOffice "native" formats
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
'file' when presented with "OpenDocument Text" type .odt file,
or with "OpenOffice.org 1.0 Text Document" .sxw file, simply
resonds with "data". It does not seem to have any problems
to recognize "Microsoft Office Document" or "Rich Text".
With pretty distinct headers it would appear that adding .odt
or .sxw enteries to 'magic' should not be an issue. Actually
a correct identification of .ott and .stw files would be also
in order (although I am not sure how "accidental" are differences
between .sxw and .stw files which I am seeing while .ott are
I did not check how 'file' fares with file types produced by
other programs in OpenOffice suite.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This was caused by misplaced magic rule for WINZIP. Should be fixed in
file-4.19-2.fc7. Patch sent to upstream.
