Hello,

I'm having a problem updating my current version of core utils to
coreutils-5.2.1-48.1.i386.rpm - taken from the fedora updates page and
I am encountering the following error...

# rpm -Uvh coreutils-5.2.1-48.1.i386.rpm
warning: coreutils-5.2.1-48.1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID
4f2a6fd2

Preparing... ###########################################
[100%]
1:coreutils ###########################################
[100%]
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /bin/ls: cpio: rename failed
- Operat
ion not permitted

I am using fedora 4 on intel platform... The same process failed in the
past when trying to use up2date... There is no version of yum currently
installed on the box...

Has anybody encountered this problem before? Any idea how to resolve?
--
I have since noticed that the owner of the file is not root and is '122' in group '114', is this normal in Fedora 4? I have not changed it from default... I tried to change ownership back to root - but this was not permitted... Any ideas?

Best Regards,

Hi,
I managed to get the problem sorted... It turned out to be the settings of the file attributes...

I changed them using
CODE
[root@ root]# chattr -ais [B]<filename>[/B]

and it fixed my problem after changing the ownership and group back to root...

Thanks for your help
