Description of problem:
I have Fedora Core 1 fully upgraded from stable update packages.
Seg. fault occurs:
#rpm -i(U)hv smth.
No seg. fault:
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
D: opening db environment /var/lib/rpm/Packages joinenv
D: opening db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages rdonly mode=0x0
D: locked db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages
D: opening new database with dbapi 3
D: opening db environment /var/lib/rpmrebuilddb.4228/Packages
D: opening db index /var/lib/rpmrebuilddb.4228/Packages create
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):
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.
Seg. fault still happens
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?
