found out that /usr/share/file/magic.mgc also has a bunch of zeroes in the start of file.
file package was upgraded via pacman -Syu today too, to 5.11-1
Unpacked file-5.11-1-arm.pkg.tar.xz (md5: 7371420657d1567edd92c98b0b451833) manually on amd64 and verified that magic.mgc is broken inside the arm package. Is there any way to verify that file on the repo server?
makes me wonder if many today's upgrades are broken.
I compared amd64 to arm, file-5.11-1, magic.mgc, same file size, arm appears to have first 666100 bytes overwritten with zeros. Amount of zeros is same as in libguile.so
