[Gluster-users] Problem with Gluster's LATEST RPM Builds

Hi -
Interesting,I have downloaded python 64-bit rpm from other resources (like centos,rpmfind ) they show  arch as 32-bit!

$ file python-2.6.5-3.el6.x86_64.rpm
python-2.6.5-3.el6.x86_64.rpm: RPM v3 bin i386 python-2.6.5-3.el6

$ file python-2.7.1-7.fc15.x86_64.rpm
python-2.7.1-7.fc15.x86_64.rpm: RPM v3 bin i386 python-2.7.1-7.fc15

Reading more about from here http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/s1-rpm-file-format-rpm-file-format.html

My guess is, 'file' command still uses an old magic signature (lead - where 'arch' value can be found with in first few bytes), but the new magic signature(header) stores the details
in some other place.May be recent the rpmbuild updates arch value in 'header' but not in old 'lead' structure.

$ file --version

You have some Gluster packages available for download here:


They are labeled as x86_64, however they're actually i386, as you can see here:
