  1. coreutils update: fedora4 - error: unpacking of archive failed - operation not permitted

    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

    error: unpacking of archive failed on file /bin/ls: cpio: rename failed

    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?

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

    Thanks for your help

    But how did the +i attribute get set in the first place, and how did the
    username/group get changed?

    Mark, there really is a strong reason why several of us responders to your
    posting in comp.os.linux.security told you to expect that you've been
    0wn3d. Those changes only happen by intent, or if you have someone with
    access who is playing without having a clue to what they are doing. Either
    one is bad news.
