Bug#5016: kernel-source-2.0.23 corrupt && diskspace not recovered
This is really strange. I can open this deb file via
$ ar xf kernel-source-2.0.23-0.all.deb
and test the .tar.gz files that it contains via a "tar tfz *gz". However,
when I attempt to install the package I get
miles:/mirror/debian/incoming [root] # dpkg -i kernel-source-2.0.23-0.all.deb
Selecting previously deselected package kernel-source-2.0.23.
(Reading database ... 18710 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking kernel-source-2.0.23 (from kernel-source-2.0.23-0.all.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing kernel-source-2.0.23-0.all.deb (--install):
corrupted filesystem tarfile - corrupted package archive
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
but the worst is that it leaves the 23 MB on my system. Here are two
snippets from df, just before and just after the attempted installation:
/dev/hda7 396165 226785 148920 60% /usr <----- before
/dev/hda7 396165 250263 125442 67% /usr <----- after
As the installation dies on error, I can't purge, remove or even list the
files from the package. So I'll collect them by hand ...
This just happened on two machines. both run kernel 2.0.23, one has
dpkg-1.4.0 and the other dpkg-126.96.36.199.
