When I try to run this command :
rpmbuild -bb SPECS/software.spec
I get an error when the WAR file (as in tomcat java web archive file) is being added to the rpm:
error: create archive failed on file /<filepath>/<filename>.war: cpio: Bad magic
This didn't use to happen. The only things that have changed since this worked was an upgrade. Further, no problems are happening like it on my CentOS 5 box. I compile and build the exact same code set on both machines, but CentOS 6 won't create an rpm.
How do I troubleshoot this? I have already googled it and received few (if any) useful links. This appears nowhere in the user guide for RPM as far as I can see, and Maximum RPM has no section on this.
