Description Elliot Lee 2004-01-22 08:35:33 EST
'rpm -q rpm' segfaults
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2004-01-23 11:22:37 EST
db_verify succeeds, rebuilddb segfaults too.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2004-01-23 11:40:37 EST
What does rpm -qa -vv say? Alternatively --rebuilddb -vv?
Try rm /var/lib/rpm/Pubkeys, or add --nosignature --nodigest.

If that segfaults, then manual deletion of that header is what is needed.
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2004-01-23 21:08:08 EST
Manual deletion can be accomplished by downloading

You will need the header instance number to be deleted,
the 1st number displayed with -vv output with rpm -qa,
or rpm --rebuilddb, as in:
    D:  read h#    2042 Header ...

Edit the header instance into t38454.c, compile, execute, run
--rebuilddb afterwards to rebuild the indices.
