Description of problem:
After manually upgrading a freshly installed RedHatLinux 9.0
system locks down and any further command returns Segmentation fault
System won't boot either.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
After issuing a rpm -Fvh glibc*, an error occured and system becomes unstable.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Freshly installed 9.0
2. Download glibc* from updates.redhat.com
3. rpm -Fvh glibc*
Segmentation fault for any command. System won't boot.
Manually upgrading by selecting each rpm and using --nodeps switch work OK.
I am experiencing the exact same problem. I have repeated this over 10 times on
two different machines with various hardware configurations in each.
You are most definitely replacing a i686 installation with i386 binaries. Don't
do that. If you'd have up2date update your machine this wouldn't happen. If
you do it yourself you better know what you do.
