RPM segfaults on most operations
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:57:43 EDT
Very similar to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=57055
Description of problem:
RPM database seems corrupted. rpm -qa segfaults. rpm --rebuilddb segfaults.
Have followed the solution in BUG ID 57055, but still have problems. Also have
followed instructions at http://www.rpm.org/hintskinks/repairdb/ but no solution
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qa
broken database at http://www.kudzuforest.com/rpmdb-brmiller.tar.gz
Solution provided in private email by Jeff Johnson.
Reopen if you need more help, please.
I am having the same problem -- rpm -qa segfaults.
These solutions are always provided by private mail, so how can I get
a copy of the solution? I will provide any files requested.
Please be advised, I have not updated the rpm version (still 4.0.2-
6x) as I believe the problems resides in packages.rpm with the glib
# rpm -qa
# rpm -q glib
This is the package right before fwbuilder in the nameindex.rpm
file. The file before glib is X11R6-Contrib .. it works fine:
# rpm -q X11R6-contrib
