Description Chris Ricker 2003-08-26 00:42:53 EDT
On my severn system, yum'ed to rawhide, rpm dumps core when attempting to
install the following RPM:


The source rpm is


(warning: big files, slow link ;-)

Spec attached momentarily -- only unusual thing in it is that I use

AutoReq: no

to disable dependency generation

If you can point me to debuginfo files for rpm-4.2.1-0.30, I'll bt it

The actual error is:

[kaboom@skuld noarch]$ sudo rpm -ivh XFree86-source-4.3.0-0.fdr.1.noarch.rpm 
rpm: rpmte.c:530: rpmteColorDS: Assertion `ix < Count' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)
[kaboom@skuld noarch]$

spec file for core-dumping rpm

Attached is the spec, if you'd rather download the XFree86 src from
ftp.xfree86.org and rebuild it yourself

The RPM is quite simple -- just unpacks the XFree86 src to
/usr/src/XFree86-4.3.0 for use when compiling XFree86 extensions which require
the XFree86 source tree....
