From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830 Description of problem: rpm crashes when installing/upgrading certain rpms all at once. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): rpm-4.1-1.06 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: In this example I was installing enlightenment window manager on the system (I know it's old, but I like it). I saw this problem when installing a few other programs as well on various computers with a fairly unmodified configuration. 1. Download the following rpms from rpmfind.net and put them in their own directory: enlightenment-0.16.5-1.i386.rpm (I got this one from the enlightenment.org website) enlightenment-conf-0.15-9.i386.rpm fnlib-0.5-1.i386.rpm fnlib-devel-0.5-1.i386.rpm imlib-1.9.13-3.7.x.i386.rpm 2. Type the following command: rpm -Uvh *.rpm --nodeps 3. rpm crashes with a segfault. 4. Installing each of the rpms individually instead of grouped together does not yield a segfault. Additional info: When installing these same rpms in the exact same manor on RedHat 7.3 everything is installed as expected. I also tried passing rpm the --rebuilddb option which didn't affect anything.

You're downloading packages (fnlib at least) from 1999 produced by rpm-3.0. Rebuild from src.rpm's if you want these bits installed.
