I'm new to whitebox linux. I would like to test some oracle apps, so I
decided to install WBEL and run oracle on it.
My problem comes during the ftp install.
(Downloaded all the iso images, and copy the files from it to my local
ftp server. I made this a lot of time before, to install a RedHat type
When the process reached the "xloadimage-4.1-36.RHEL4.i386.rpm", it
stoped. It was a usual message, "Failed to read file" or something I
don't remember exactly. I can't go through this screen so, I rebooted
the machine, and looked the file at the ftp server. I realized, rpm
didn't recognize it as a valid package.
The problematic file cames from the image:
I checked the md5sum of this iso, but it was wrong. The others were OK.
After downloading the isos from another three mirrors, the result was
Now I realized not all the rpms are bad on the third iso. I mounted the
image through the loopback device, and ran the following command:
for i in *.rpm; do if rpm --nosignature -qpl $i | grep not an rpm
package; then echo $i >> /tmp/list.txt; fi done
So I made a list with the names of the files which rpm doesn't read.
(If somebody needs it, let me know)
Is this a known problem, or I made something wrong?
