Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-06-16 11:42:59 EDT
is this still valid?

assigned to notting.

the patch sent has some security problems, but that would be the

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-17 20:24:59 EDT
Here's what works (rpm-3.0.2-0.3 but all rpm-3.0 should be same):

bash$ cat rpm-devel-3.0.2-0.3.sparc.rpm | rpm -qp -- -
Broken pipe
krusty:/D/6.1/sparc 776 bash$
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-18 12:16:59 EDT
