Description Stephen Rasku 2000-02-19 19:25:57 EST
I have tried this with rpm-3.0.3-0.32 and rpm-3.0.4-0.38.  The following
didn't work for either version:

rpm -qip ftp://ftp.redhat.com/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/rdate-1.0-1.i386.rpm

I got the error:

open of ftp://ftp.redhat.com/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/rdate-1.0-1.i386.rpm
failed: File not found on server

However, I am able to download the file with either netscape or the command
line ftp just fine.

rpm -qip ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/rdate-1.0-1.i386.rpm

(note extra pub at front)
