Description Chris Chabot 2003-06-25 00:20:12 EDT
in rpmsignature.c it reads
if (rpmReadSignature(fdi, &sig, lead.signature_type, NULL) !=  RPMRC_OK) {
   // do stuff..

but it should be
if (rpmReadSignature(fdi, &sig, lead.signature_type, NULL) !=  RPMRC_OK) {
// do stuff..

Now, if the sig is read in correctly, it exits with exit code 1

rpmsignature.c ain't been changed for >5 years, while rpm has.

I'm not sure this is worh fixing, rpm-4.1 and later use a whole
different interface and API; rpmsignature has never been more than
an illustration of a now largely defunct (but still present) API.

See rpm2cpio.sh for an example of how to extract the signature
blob from shell, not hard.
