Dear RPM Team,

 I installed RPM binaries on QNX. QNX is running on Hardware with SD-Card. I
tried to install RPM Package but I a getting following error mentioned in
subject i.e. (error: unpacking of archive failed on file /: cpio: chown
failed - No such file or directory).

error: unpacking of archive failed on file /: cpio: chown failed - No such
file or directory



I applied Patch (rpm-5.1.7_rpmio_rpmrpc.c.patch) given by Mr. Michael
Baudisch in community discussions “RPM running on FAT16-formatted systems”(
http://rpm5.org/community/rpm-devel/3472.html) because previous to this
error I was getting following error.

error: unpacking of archive failed on file /: cpio: chown failed - Function
not implemented



Is there any way to resolve this error? Is this issue is because of
FAT16-formatted systems. If yes then please let me know how I can fix this
issue.



Thanks and Regards,
Manoj Palhade
