Description Petr Danecek 2005-09-22 09:22:42 UTC
Hello, My Fedora 2 (with all updates applied) freezes totally and must be restarted by pushing the power-off button, every time when doing a RPM installation and also when running 'rpm -verify'. The behaviour is rather strange: It freezes only when the root privileges were obtained by issuing 'su' command; when logged in as root, rpm runs ok. When comparing finished and unfinished outputs of rpm verify, it seems that the system crashes repeatedly at the same place. I'd be very grateful for tips how to debug and solve this problem, Petr Danecek

---------- Additional information: I have identified the offending package. To freeze my system, I can login as a normal user and then type: su rpm -q xorg-x11-libs --verify I only wonder, how an userspace program can freeze the machine totally, so that even pinging on it from some other machine does not work???

Check for I/O errors in your logs for one of the blocks in the files contained within the xorg-x11-libs package.

I haven't found any such error. In fact, all of the xorg-x11-libs files can be copied to another place with no problem. :-(

Fedora Core 2 is no longer supported, please test your issue against the latest release Fedora Core 4 and reopen if still occuring.
