Description shane 1999-12-15 23:18:32 EST
After upgrading to the latest version of Rawhide, I have begun noticing RPM
reporting "unpacking of archive failed: cpio: Bad magic" when installing
some (not all) rpms.  The RPMS I am attempting to install are rawhide RPMS
so I assume they are built correctly.

I have tried downloading the same files that error out and the problem
persists.

[root@lost shane]# rpm -Uhv newt-devel-0.50.1-14.i386.rpm
isapnptools-1.21-1.i386.rpm
newt-devel

Yup, rpm-3.0.4 is broke. The problem (I'm guessing) is only on builds, but,
if you're doing serious production work, you should use rpm-3.0.3 instead.
Meanwhile I should have a fix in the next day or 2 ...

This should be fixed in the next Raw Hide with rebuilt RPMs.
