RPM Install error __cpio: md5 mismatch__ on version 1.9.2

by cdzombak on 30 Aug 2009

When I try to install videocache 1.9.2 on my Fedora 10 server, I get this error:

# rpm -ivh videocache-1.9.2-1.noarch.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
   1:videocache ########################################### [100%]
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /etc/httpd/conf.d/videocache.conf;4a9aaffa: cpio: MD5 sum mismatch

I think, but am not sure, that this is an error in the RPM which must be corrected. I've downloaded it several times, so I doubt random corruption in transmission is the culprit.

Hi!

You can use tar.gz file to install videocache in case you are not able to download the rpm without corruption. The other problem may be that you are behind a caching proxy and you are getting the videocache rpm from proxy cache (which has corrupted version).

Thank You!

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion. However, I would much rather install it so that my package manager is aware of the software and I can manage it through RPM in the future.

I have tried downloading the RPM on a server in a different state (across the USA from me, in fact) and then SCP-ing the file to my target server, thus avoiding any of my local ISP's caching servers. I still have the same issue, though.

Updated to add: I've also tried rebooting my target machine, which did not help.

update :
i download 1.9.1 ... it can install perfect.

[root@localhost Download]# rpm -ivh videocache-1.9.1-1.noarch.rpm 
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:videocache             ########################################### [100%]
You need to modify /etc/videocache.conf to make caching work properly.
Also you need to configure squid. Check videocache manpage for more details.
Check http://cachevideos.com/ in case of any problems.

I'd rather not install an old version, either, with the performance improvements and new URLs added in 1.9.2.

(Also, as a side note, the email notifications for the forum are not working, for me anyway.)

The RPM from cachevideos.com seems corrupt.

The working solutions for me is :

  1. Download the tar.gz version.
  2. unpack the tar.gz version. it has spec file on it.
  3. Copy the tar.gz version to your RPM build/SRC directory.
  4. rebuild the rpm with rpm --rebuild command
  5. Install the rpm result file.

Thx
