Description of problem:
I tried to repair the RPM database according to
http://www.rpm.org/hintskinks/repairdb/, but I get a segfault when
issuing a "rpm -qa".
According to what's written on that URL, I'm posting here my findings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qa
Created attachment 96640 [details]
Result of RPM -QA
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/Pubkeys
rpm --rebuilddb -vv
If there is no segfault after the above, then
this problem is fixed in rpm-4.2.2-0.5 in fedoral devel.
Otherwise reopen this bug, and I'll get you sorted out.
That fixed the problem. I'm trying to update the whole system by
adding the DEVELOPMENT repository to YUM. I guess it will take quite
a lot of time because of dependencies :-)
Anyway: thank you!
