Description manuel wolfshant 2012-11-26 03:07:52 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #880081 +++

Description of problem:
/usr/bin/zforce fails to identify and rename valid gzipped files

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.	touch /tmp/test
2. gzip /tmp/test
3. mv /tmp/test.gz /tmp/test
4. zforce /tmp/test
Actual results:
Nothing happens

Expected results:
/tmp/test should be renamed to /tmp/test.gz

Additional info:

The /usr/bin/zforce utility is a script. Line 61

if gzip -l < "$i" 2>/dev/null | grep '^compressed' > /dev/null; then

is incorrect. The output of gzip -l /tmp/file (see above) is

         compressed uncompressed ratio uncompressed_name
                 25 0 0.0% /tmp/file

so '^compressed' fails because of the spaces printed in front of "compressed"
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 20:14:15 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

I think this should be fast-track.
