Dear RPM Team,

I am doing Performance testing of RPM on My Target (QNX as an OS). I am
trying to install RPM Package of size 100 MB. This RPM Package contains zip
file of 100 MB. Time taken by RPM to install this 100 MB package is 3.10s;
which I believe is wrong for 100 MB rpm package. I haven’t seen Zip file got
copied after installation. I found following file at destination location
“Test100.zip;000000fa”. I tried to remove this file but I am not able to
remove it.
I tried same Testing in VMWare Session where QNX is installed; it is working
file. I can see zip file of RPM Package getting copied.

Is there any limitation on size of RPM Packages and File inside the RPM

Another problem I am getting as follow.

I am getting following error when I try to un-nstall RPM Packages
error: cannot create %_repackage_dir /opt/sys/var/spool/repackage/88817

# rpm -e Test25-1.0-1
error: cannot create %_repackage_dir /opt/sys/var/spool/repackage/1430

# rpm -e Test20-1.0-1
error: cannot create %_repackage_dir /opt/sys/var/spool/repackage/1445

Last folder name (88817) varies each time. How to avoid this error. Is this
error is because of Fat16 file system.

Thanks and Regards,
Manoj Palhade
