Description Paul Carter 2002-10-27 14:48:13 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
When using "file -i" on a bzip2 compressed file, it returns back "data" and not
"application/x-bzip2" as expected and as RH 7.2 would do. A grep of
/usr/share/magic.mime finds that "application/x-bzip2" does not appear in the file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "file -i access_log_2002_09.bz2"


Actual Results:  file: Using regular magic file `/usr/share/magic.mime'
access_log_2002_09.bz2: data

Expected Results:  file: Using regular magic file `/usr/share/magic.mime'
access_log_2002_09.bz2: application/x-bzip2
