Description Bill Nottingham 2009-03-31 16:10:54 EDT
Description of problem:

%verify(not md5 size mtime) %config(noreplace) /etc/hosts

md5 is now not md5, of course. (Unless you have to specify the
specific hash algorithm in %verify, which would be even more

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2009-04-01 07:20:42 EDT
Latest upstream rpm now allows either %verify(filedigest) or %verify(md5). The md5 is kept for backward compatibility and means general file digest checking, not only md5. The md5 and filedigest in %verify are actually synonyms now.

Maybe we want to backport it to 4.7.0-beta.
Comment 2 Panu Matilainen 2009-04-09 09:09:02 EDT
This is fixed in rpm-4.7.0-rc1 in rawhide now.
