Description Sami Maisniemi 2003-08-31 15:13:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Use of any RPM related command causes a relocation error. As a consequence, any
updates cannot be applied.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Occurs everytime.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute any RPM related command, even just 'rpm' (without options) is enough.
Actual results:
rpm: relocation error: /usr/lib/librpmdb-4.2.so: undefined symbol: tion

Expected results:
Requested operation is executed succesfully.

Additional info:
Even reinstallation all rpm related packages from Red Hat Linux 9.0 installation
CDs has been carried out, but without any results.

Can you append output from
    readelf --symbols /usr/lib/librpmdb-4.2.so
Comment 2 Sami Maisniemi 2003-09-01 14:54:07 EDT
Created attachment 94121 [details]
Output of 'readelf --symbols'

Here you are, I hope this helps.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2004-12-13 08:04:14 EST
The readelf output indicates the librpmdb-4.2.so is
corrupted (which explains the relocation error).

How the file got corrupted is unknown.

Reopen if the problem still exists.
