Description Selecter 2004-01-02 17:43:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
I have Fedora Core 1 fully upgraded from stable update packages.

Seg. fault occurs:
#rpm --rebuilddb
#rpm -i(U)hv smth.

No seg. fault:
rpm --help
rpm --version
and so on...

[root@localhost anton]# rpm --rebuilddb -vv
D: rebuilding database /var/lib/rpm into /var/lib/rpmrebuilddb.4228
D: creating directory /var/lib/rpmrebuilddb.4228
D: opening old database with dbapi 3

Segmentation fault

I've tryed:
1) rebooting
2) Doing rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db* before rebuilding db

Somehow after working for a while I was starting to get "Illegal
Instruction" executing "rpm -ihv" and "rpm --rebuilddb". Then, I've
installed all updates successfuly. But after reboot I've got
"segmentation fault" again.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I only remember that before seg. fault I installed redhat*pack*.rpm
from stable updates...
2. And launched up2date that had frozed... for some minutes.

Updated to:
rpm-4.2.2-0.8.i386.rpm        rpm-devel-4.2.2-0.8.i386.rpm
rpm-build-4.2.2-0.8.i386.rpm  rpm-python-4.2.2-0.8.i386.rpm

Seg. fault still happens

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2004-01-03 07:13:02 UTC
Which is it, rpm-4.2.1 or rpm-4.2.2 that you want debugged?

Does rpm -qa -vv work?

How about rpm -V -vv rpm popt?
