Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-07-24 13:40:28 UTC
This is now a warning, not an error. Since it's now possible to put installed
bits back into a package using --repackage, and the version of zlib used
causes the package to have a different size, there's no way to differntiate
that case from the more typical case (at the moment) of a damaged package.

Use rpm -K to verify package integrity.
