rpm -qa segmentation fault
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
rpm -qa segfaults.
These solutions are always provided by private mail, so how can I get
a copy of the solution? I will provide any files requested.
Please be advised, I have not updated the rpm version (still 4.0.2-
6x) as I believe the problems resides in packages.rpm with the glib
# rpm -qa
# rpm -q glib
This is the package right before fwbuilder in the nameindex.rpm
file. The file before glib is X11R6-Contrib .. it works fine:
# rpm -q X11R6-contrib
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
If you still have packages.rpm, then this is a db1 rpmdb
that is almost impossible to support.
You might try a --rebuilddb with rpm-4.0.4 (or -4.0.5, I fergit)
from ftp.rpm.org:/pub/rpm/dist/rpm-4.0.x. The algorithm
for repairing a broken chain in the first-fit set of headers
is better in rpm-4.0.4, might help repair the damage.
