Default file does not recognize .ogg

Hi all,

Gentoo's file command is slightly deficient, it seems to not have a
magic number for .ogg:

alan@nazgul ~ $ find /home/alan/music -type f -name *ogg -exec file {}
;
/home/alan/music/A/ABC/The Lexicon of Love/06 - The look of love (part
one).ogg: data

repeat 1313 times (every .ogg I have)


A fellow Ubuntu-using Linux-conspirator gets this:

$ file "Alabama 3 - Exile on Coldharbour Lane/Alabama 3 - Mao Tse Tung
Said.ogg"
Alabama 3 - Exile on Coldharbour Lane/Alabama 3 - Mao Tse Tung Said.ogg:
Ogg data, Vorbis audio, stereo, 44100 Hz, ~112001 bps, created by:
Xiph.Org libVorbis I (1.0)


How do I teach my Gentoo system the magic of .ogg?

alan@nazgul ~ $ eix -e file
[i] sys-apps/file
Available versions: 4.21-r1 4.23 (~)4.24 {python}
Installed versions: 4.24(11:15:43 PM 04/01/2008)(python)

I wondered if it was your dodgy taste in music ;-) but it does the same
here. I then downgraded for 4.24 to 4.23 and it worked, so there is a bug
here.

You found it first, so I'll let you have the honour of filing it on
b.g.o. :P

With free advice you often get what you pay for.

Oy, what's wrong with my vast collection of Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath,
ABC and even some Elton John??? :-)

Nothing, not much, not so bad really, how long have you got?

GOTO: (n.) an efficient and general way of controlling a program, much
despised by academics and others whose brains have been ruined by
overexposure to Pascal.
