User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1 i686)
Description of problem:
The new file (3.34) rpm has changed some of the magic strings.
Scripst now have the word 'executable' in their name, which causes
find-requires to try to run objdump on them, which causes errors.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.update the 'file' rpm
2.build an RPM with scripts in it (such as kernel..)
Actual Results: objdump:
/var/tmp/kernel/usr/src/linux-2.4.3C2_III/arch/ppc/boot/offset: File format
repeated for many files
Expected Results: silence
Fixed in rpm-4.0.3 about a month ago.
