Comment 1 Michael Lee Yohe 2002-12-01 19:25:31 UTC
The error you are receiving is because gdb attempts to grab information from the object code of a binary file. "up2date" is not a binary application - it is actually a Python script: $ file /usr/sbin/up2date /usr/sbin/up2date: a /usr/bin/python -u script text executable Instead you could provide the strace output of the execution: # strace /usr/sbin/up2date 2> output_up2date.stderr Attach output_up2date.stderr to this bug.
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2002-12-13 22:21:03 UTC
How does up2date fail if ran from the command line? Do you get error messages? if so, what are they?
Comment 4 Kyle 2003-02-08 18:44:59 UTC
apparently all you need to do is rm -f /var/lib/rpm__db*...conflict w/ the rpm bug...closed
Comment 5 Kyle 2003-02-08 19:11:35 UTC
check that....its rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
