Default Firefox install-problem

Hi,

Firefox, built from .srpm from F17-updates repository, fails to install:
This is the error-message which shows up:

"Unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox;501bceec: cpio: Digest mismatch"

The package is original Fedora and not altered in any way. Extracted
it, ran "rpmbuild -bb" on the .spec file, and the built was ok.

Does anybody know what's the cause or where to look?

Even though the build was OK, you still might want to do a memtest of
your system. (You can do that from Fedora live media, if you have any:
it’s an option on the boot menu. You can probably do it from a normal
Fedora install DVD, but I don’t have one around to check at the moment.)

I solved the problem. The culprit is prelink, which lets parts of the
package clash. Didn't find the related bugreport st once, though, and spent
some hours digging into the problem. Baah!

A workaround is to uninstall prelink, compile firefox, and re-install
it afterwards.
