Pinned topic rpm: rpmReadSignature failed

‏2009-11-13T15:44:16Z |
when i try to install the rpm on SuSE 11.1 it throws an error.

error: iSeriesAccess-6.1.0-1.0.i386.rpm: rpmReadSignature failed: region trailer: BAD, tag 15872 type 2047 offset 20480 count 4096
error: iSeriesAccess-6.1.0-1.0.i386.rpm cannot be installed

I tried the 5.4 version also and got the same error.

    Hi Hoover,

    this is unlikely going to solve your problem, but just for the record: The iSeriesAccess-6.1.0-1.0.i386.rpm installs and runs fine on OpenSUSE 11.1 (as well as 11.2 since it's come out). You need to have openmotif, odbc and xorg-x11 fonts installed, but the error message you get doesn't look like a failed dependency error at all. Try downloading again, maybe the file is corrupted? How are you trying to install, via yast?

      Hi Greg,

      Thanks for the reply. It is not a dependency error it is an RPM error, before it gets to where it checks dependencies. I tried re-downloading the file, and the v5r4 version. It still throws that same error on me. I have tried from the command line "rpm -ivh iSeries..." and from yast, no love.
