The version of Mageia I'm running is back level.  It went out of support
over a year ago.  I generall upgrade to their even releases (once every
two years, rather than annually).

Here is the information on the file command:

address@hidden nmh-1.7-RC3]$ file --version
magic file from /usr/share/misc/magic
address@hidden nmh-1.7-RC3]$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/file
