As requested from AndyRTR in forum post: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=48347

file 4.24-1 no longer identifies .ogg containers and just labels them as data. There is also a problem with .url files.

I will just post my email to upstream about this issue and it should also appear later at:

Hi.

I am using Arch Linux and file 4.24 no longer identifies .ogg & .url files.

For .ogg:

owner@amd1200:/common/netcast$ file bsdtalk148.ogg
bsdtalk148.ogg: data
owner@amd1200:/common/netcast$ hexdump -Cv bsdtalk148.ogg | head

owner@amd1200:/common/workspace$ cat > website.url

owner@amd1200:/common/workspace$ dos2unix --u2d website.url
owner@amd1200:/common/workspace$ file website.url
website.url: MS Windows 95 Internet shortcut text (URL=< >)

URL=< > above contains nothing but it used to.

I just subscribed to this list today and the mailing list archive ends on April 8, so I don't know if this has been posted already.

Please respond directly as I have not received a subscription confirmation yet.

Thanks.

I got a reply with the fix.

In file-4.24/magic/Magdir/vorbis change:
0 search/1000 OggS Ogg data
to
0 string OggS Ogg data
and recompile

owner@amd1200:/usr/local/bin$ ./file /common/netcast/bsdtalk148.ogg
/common/netcast/bsdtalk148.ogg: Ogg data, Vorbis audio, mono, 44100 Hz, ~96000 bps, created by: Xiph.Org libVorbis I (1.1.0 RC1)

Fixed upstream then?
Comment by Robert Bowers (onedingo) - Wednesday, 14 May 2008, 22:25 GMT
It's been noticed so I can only guess that it will be.
Comment by Andreas Radke (AndyRTR) - Wednesday, 11 June 2008, 22:29 GMT
also .Z files are no more recognized.

these are minor issues and the upstream developer knows about it and how to fix. so you too. no need to touch the pkg here for a quick fix.
