Description Bernd Waibel 2004-03-03 11:30:05 UTC

Description of problem:
When using rpmbuild -bp on spec file or rpmbuild --rebuild on a src
rpm file, then rpmbuild always crashes with a segmentation fault.

This problem always occurs. At first I thought that maybe the package
I used has some errors, but then trying other packages, always the
same problem arises.

I have a nearly clean Fedora Core install with only a few packages
from Fedora.us and a few other packages (mainly audio and video
related applications and libraries) from FreshRPMs installed. Beyond
this I have also installed the mono packages from Ximian.

I am not sure, if this problem also occurs immediately after the
installation of Fedora Core. But I don't know with which appl/libs
rpmbuild could have problems.

The package I would to build is the alsa-driver package. I build a new
kernel yesterday, because I need NTFS filesystem support by the kernel
to access (read-only) some of my data which is located on a NTFS
partition I had to use over the last few years. But then I also need
to compile a new alsa-driver package, or include the package in the

There may be other ways in this case to accomplish this task, but the
problem does still exist with other packages.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. call rpmbuild --rebuild alsa-driver-1.0.2c-1.fr.src.rpm

Actual Results:  Program output: Segmentation fault
after that the prompt appears.

Expected Results:  My package should have been compiled and a binary
package should have been built.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2004-03-03 19:38:05 UTC
Can you supply a URL to exactly the alsa src.rpm that
you are trying to build so that I can try to reproduce?

Comment 3 Bernd Waibel 2004-03-05 21:47:39 UTC
yep that's the right one

Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2004-12-07 16:46:59 UTC
I suspect that this problem is (or rather was) due to
other causes than rpm flaws. Feel free to reopen if
my guess is wrong.
