Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53623
rpmdiff doesn't seem to work
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
rpmdiff seems broken and not do anything useful
Steps to Reproduce:
% /usr/lib/rpm/rpmdiff mozilla-chat-0.9.2.1-1.i386.rpm
/usr/lib/rpm/rpmdiff: Error parsing header in rpm file:
mozilla-chat-0.9.2.1-1.i386.rpm, record number: 0.
comparison of rpm's content should appear
Both rpmdiff and rpmdiff.cgi are eliminated, fix should
be in rpm-4.1-0.39 and later
Not quite the fix I had in mind, but anyway...
A nice set of powerful rpm utils would really be something
