From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)
"failed on file /usr/src/linux-2.4.2/fs/sysv/inode.c: cpio: MD5 sum
Steps to Reproduce:
1.download the kernel-source rpm
2.run rpm -ih
3.see the pretty error message
Actual Results: the package failed to install. Does that warrant a "duh"?
Expected Results: I'd normally expect a genuine redhat package to
without errors about the internal structure of the package.
Wow, how on earth did this one get past you guys????
I also note that there is no specific entry in bugzilla for the kernel-
Were you *that* confident of it?
There is no "kernel-source" bugzilla entry as it is generated by the "kernel"
.spec file, just as kernel-headers and some others.
I've done the rpm -i of the kernel source SEVERAL times in the last weeks
without problems. does the md5 sum of your file match
Nope. I get:
I got this from the iso image at mirror.aarnet.edu.au
I also d/l'd one with rpmfind and it turned out the same.
So its not a fault with the cd burning... I mounted the image as loop too and
got the same result.
The kernel-source rpm I got from a mirror really has the md5 sum I pasted.
The sunsite mirror of Red Hat Linux supports rsync. Could you try rsyncing
the file from there and see if the file changes?
(if it doesn't it's not an intrusive download due to rsync)
Ok, maybe mirror.aarnet.edu.au somehow got a bad iso image.
Can you contact anyone else who d/l'd that image to verify this?
I'll d/l it myself and check.
