I'm adding the RPM software to our linux platform. It builds and almost appears to work but I'm seeing the following.
I'm having a problem with installing rpm's. More details are below but the most recent thing I've discovered is the call to NSS_NoDB_Init fails with -5925 during RPMBUILD and RPM installs, so I'm wondering if this could be my problem.
I've also tried installing a fairly simple rpm ... rpm -ivv --nodeps nano-2.0.6-4.fc9.i386.rpm But have the same checksum problem.
Any help, or info on
other resources would be greatly appreciated.
Here are the details... I'm having a problem installing an RPM that I created that only contains %files section to be installled on a i386 platform. The rpm database is currently empty so this is the first thing going in.
The problem is ... $ rpm -i /rpm/RPMS/i386/axis-4.0-1.i386.rpm error: unpacking of archive failed on file /device_handlers/axis/axis.so;4cd1a2a6: cpio: MD5 sum mismatch
What is actually being checksum'd during an install?
The target platform is based on FC10 but not a complete distribution. I'm adding RPM to our platform, and the rpm source from rpm-4.6.1-3.fc10.src.rpm is built in an isolated build area using chroot. I'm also running rpm and rpmbuild from the same isolated build environment. My spec file is included
I'd like to perform an rpm install in this same isolated area, but having the problem above. I believe I've satisfied all of the dependencies required, and manually verifying the md5sums have proven successful.
My searches on the internet have found instances about incompatible libs needed for the packaged file but I don't think that is the case since I'm building everything against the same set of libs. I've also tried the prelink suggestions that I've found. I feel like maybe I'm missing something (executable) that rpm needs for the checksum.
