Description of problem:
Whenever I try installing this rpm (part of the zlib update) I get this message
which indicates that the file is corrupt:
warning: Expected size: 3019632 = lead(96)+sigs(293)+pad(3)+data(3019240)
warning: Actual size: 2908348
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download the file from
2.rpm -Uvh libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm
3.See error message....
Actual Results: The file appears to be corrupt and may cause problems with gcc3
Expected Results: The filesize is wrong and the package is corrupt; this
package may have been uploaded to the redhat ftp server in ascii format instead
of binary format. Can you please fix it so I can update my gcc3?
This file is part of the packages that were updated to fix the zlib security
Cannot reproduce this:
ls -l 7.2/en/os/i386/libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mirrors mirrors 3019632 Mar 11 04:37 7.2/en/os/i386/libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm
rpm -K 7.2/en/os/i386/libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm
7.2/en/os/i386/libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm: md5 gpg OK
(this is on an redhat.com mirror).
What mirror is this? The file on the updates.redhat.com server is still wrong.
I've tried about a dozen different mirrors now and so far all of them have the
I'm afraid it must be your local issue.
The mirror in question was sunsite.mff.cuni.cz, but I've just tried
rpm -K libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm
libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm: md5 gpg OK
