Description Jos Vos 2003-01-18 22:34:47 UTC
Description of problem:
RPM2->open_package does not work correctly (see below).

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

Sample program:

  use RPM2;
  my $pkg = RPM2->open_package($ARGV[0]);
  print "Name = ", $pkg->name, "\n";

This does for valid parameters result in:

error reading package at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/ line 63.

Manual upgrading to version 0.48 solves the problem.

Comment 1 Chip Turner 2003-01-18 22:44:42 UTC
there's a bug in 0.45 regarding header signature verification that has been
fixed in 0.48 (as you found).  an errata is unlikely at this point, however;
0.48-3 in Rawhide should also work.
