Description John Ruiz 2004-11-09 20:39:29 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020

Description of problem:
I was trying to install Ximian Desktop on Fedora Core 3.  During the
interactive installation process, I see the output shown attached to
the bug report.  About 6 lines into the output, one may see a seg
fault over the rpm --verifydb command.

A simple 'rpm --verifydb' in the terminal also produces a seg fault.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'rpm --verifydb'

Actual Results:  [root@jar349 rpms]# rpm --verifydb
Segmentation fault

Hmmm, Ximian shouldn't really be using --verifydb, but
rather should be using /usr/lib/rpm/rpmdb_verify.

<shrug> Fixed in rpm-4.3.3-1 when built.
