Description Levente Farkas 2011-09-21 16:56:08 UTC
the file 
seems to be in invalid format for rhel-5 probably it's packaged for rhel-6's xz compression

FWIW, there's an extra "en/" in the url in comment #0 that shouldn't be there.

On downloading via wget from the fixed URL:

$ sha256sum python-2.4.3-44.el5_7.1.src.rpm 
1eb2ce3c8bacd6f61282a548ee490d4956f04e776f85b2d85e3bd26c1462fc1b  python-2.4.3-44.el5_7.1.src.rpm

$ file python-2.4.3-44.el5_7.1.src.rpm 
python-2.4.3-44.el5_7.1.src.rpm: RPM v3 src PowerPC python-2.4.3-44.el5_7.1

Works fine for me on a test RHEL 5 box, with rpm- (I tried both rpmdev-extract and rpm2cpio | cpio directly)

Are you seeing the same sha256 sum, and what problem are you seeing?

hmm really strange! i REALLY double check it before i write this bz and the checksum was:
for this rpm:
rpm -qpi ~/redhat/5Server/en/os/SRPMS/python-2.4.3-44.el5_7.1.src.rpm

but now reload it again and now it's working..

anyway it seem ftp.redhat.com is under really huge load (which doesn't seems to be) do you feed 6.2 or ...?
