Description Lucio DiGiovanni 2004-06-30 21:53:06 UTC
up2date --register proceeds to the point after selecting: 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 3 for AMD64/Intel EM64T) 
At this point the up2date channels window closes and what appears in 
the xterm window is: 
Reading DMI info failed 
Segmentation fault 
If I repeat the up2date without the "--register" argument 
 I get the same "Segmentation fault" 
 without the previous line "Reading DMI info failed" 
 How reproducible: Always 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.up2date2.select package to install in new window - one item here: 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 3 for AMD64/Intel EM64T) 
Actual Results: 
  after some progress bar info the window closes 
 The original XTERM window shows "Segmentation fault"  
Expected Results: 
  The up2date window should complete without segmentation fault

the dmi is segfaulting on the dmi info from that box. 
--nohardware is a workaround. 

I'm going to attach a python script to grab the dmi
info in a format I can use to debug the dmi module.

If you could run it on the box showing the segfault,
and attach the result, it will help debug this.

python script to grab raw dmi info

Run this script like:

python getdmi.py

run it as root. It should write out a file called "dmiinfo.out"

please attach "dmiinfo.out" to this bug.
