What's Bad Magic?

Now seriously, usually files have a "magic header" which can be used to indentify the file type, in this case seems the rpm is corrupted or you need to update rpm first.

Installation of [S2:1][package]glibc-2.8-13.i686 failed:

Looking that part, this question is more suitable for opensuse-factory mailing list.. if you are running openSUSE 10.3 and trying to upgrade to factory/11.0 , then you have to upgrade rpm first, then upgrade zypper and libzypp then the whole system using zypper dist-upgrade.
