Description Fabrice Bellet 2009-02-18 08:11:44 EST

This bug is probably related to #485141. In rawhide, file fails to recognize a file from FlightGear-data. The error message from rpmbuild is :

Recognition of file "/builddir/build/BUILDROOT/FlightGear-data-1.9.0-1.fc11.i386
/usr/share/FlightGear/Aircraft/c172p/Models/Immat/Thumbs.db" failed: mode 100644
 Cannot read short stream (Invalid argument)

with file-4.26-4.fc10, this file was recognized as a Microsoft Office Document:
$ file /usr/share/FlightGear/Aircraft/c172p/Models/Immat/Thumbs.db
/usr/share/FlightGear/Aircraft/c172p/Models/Immat/Thumbs.db: Microsoft Office Document

(With the next mass rebuild of Fedora packages, file will be tested extensively, as it seems that packaged files, that make file return a non zero status, prevent a package from being rebuilt successfully)
