Description Need Real Name 2002-03-13 15:02:06 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204

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):

How reproducible:

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
if installed.

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?

Additional info:

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).
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-03-13 15:15:15 EST
What mirror is this? The file on the updates.redhat.com server is still wrong.
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-03-13 15:26:49 EST
I've tried about a dozen different mirrors now and so far all of them have the
corrupt file.
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2002-03-13 15:35:55 EST
I'm afraid it must be your local issue.
The mirror in question was sunsite.mff.cuni.cz, but I've just tried
wget ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/7.2/en/os/i386/libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm
rpm -K libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm
libgcj3-devel-3.0.4-1.i386.rpm: md5 gpg OK
