Did you ftp in ASCII mode?  The file seems to be ok on this side

I checked the file in


with this command:

rpm2cpio powerpc-rtems-gcc-gcc2.95.2newlib1.8.2-7.i386.rpm | cpio -itv

and then proceeded to install them on the OAR ftp server directly
from the download directory:

[root at usa powerpc-rtems]# rpm -i
[root at usa powerpc-rtems]# 
[root at usa powerpc-rtems]# 
[root at usa powerpc-rtems]# rpm -q -g rtems
