There appears to be an issue currently with the rpm files available at: https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdiags/suselinux/hmcmanaged/sles9.html
After downloading them, running any sort of rpm command against the files results in "MD5 digest: BAD Expected"
rpm -qpl diagela-2.2.2-0.ppc64.rpm
error: diagela-2.2.2-0.ppc64.rpm: MD5 digest: BAD Expected(17f781573ad38994fe0608f357148b02) != (fc6cbf8cda940592661a9c3801060835)
This occurs on all rpms listed at the webpage, and does not matter which browser/method is used to download them. This has been tried on firefox, and by using wget.
p570lpar6:~/smh/firefox # md5sum *.rpm
Is anyone else experiencing this issue, or can someone confirm that the the files on the server are correct?

Re: Corrupt rpm files? MD5 digest: BAD Expected2009-02-26T18:01:19Z in response to SystemAdminHi. Same problem. LoP, RH4.7. Tried 3 of the 2009.02.24 versions, all fail with MD5 digenst errors. Test of an older version, librtas-1.3.0-0 from January 2007 installs OK. I've toasted some of that older set, so I need new ones. Thanks, JC.
Re: Corrupt rpm files? MD5 digest: BAD Expected2009-02-26T18:59:31Z in response to SystemAdminInteresting...
I've tested the rpms on two systems without trouble, but both were running more recent OS's. I wonder if a change in the version of rpm used could be the cause. Here is what I'm seeing - if you could duplicate these commands and post the results, it would be appreciated:

Re: Corrupt rpm files? MD5 digest: BAD Expected2009-02-27T21:45:03Z in response to SystemAdminHi. Not exactly sure if I understand your question, but here is what I get when I run rpm -qpl librtas-1.3.3-0.ppc64.rpm
error: librtas-1.3.3-0.ppc64.rpm: MD5 digest: BAD Expected(0923fa7a4f754c06b54208706112b2af) != (2e5962fc54ff8fda44d3fad9ee69e5d7)
and here is what I get for md5sum librtas-1.3.3-0.ppc64.rpm
Characters are typed, so it's possible there could be typo's.
Re: Corrupt rpm files? MD5 digest: BAD Expected2009-02-27T21:50:14Z in response to SystemAdminJust out of interest, I ran the rpm -qpl command using an AIX 6.1 TL2 SP2 system (pretty current, and where I'm more comfortable) and got "query of librtas-1.3.3-0.ppc64.rpm failed", whereas when I run it against the older librtas rpm that I have, I get a listing of files like you listed, starting /usr/include/librtas.h ...

Re: Corrupt rpm files? MD5 digest: BAD Expected2009-03-10T23:36:57Z in response to SystemAdminIt turns out the problem never was with the RPM's themselves. Instead, the server that was hosting these files was spitting out some obscure Java error, and concatenating that error message onto the tail end of the binary data stream. We've now moved the files to an FTP host, and as far as I can tell all rpm's are working post-download. Let me know if you experience any further problems with ANY of the supplied packages.
Re: Corrupt rpm files? MD5 digest: BAD Expected2009-03-12T21:29:49Z in response to SystemAdminThanks. These all look OK so far, except, I think the link for lsvpd-1.6.5-1.ppc.rpm is wrong, just missing the "64", so you get Page cannot be displayed error. I ftp'd it by going to the directory level and picking it up from there. JC.
