I downloaded clamav-0.95.1-1.fc11.src.rpm from

I'm getting the following errors:

[root@host ~]# rpmbuild --rebuild clamav-0.95.1-1.fc11.src.rpm Installing clamav-0.95.1-1.fc11.src.rpm
warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root warning: group mockbuild does not exist - using root error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/README.fedora;4a1a91dd: cpio: MD5 sum mismatch error: clamav-0.95.1-1.fc11.src.rpm cannot be installed

I downloaded the file a second time just to insure it was not corrupted in the transfer. Results were the same.

I realize now I'm getting into a RedHat specific question and may need to move this to a RedHat list.
