Description Aaron Luchko 2005-01-26 16:51:31 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020

Description of problem:
If I try to launch yum with any arguments given and privaleges on the command line (valid or not) it crashes with the error (with no args it just gives the help dialog and exits normally) 

*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (out): 0x09849108 ***

I was successfully using yum just prior to this (installing native eclipse rpms) which also installed libgcj4-4.0.0-0.22 and suspect that may have had something to do with it.  As well this only seems to occur when running with privalges, 'yum foo' will fail fine, but using sudo or root I get the error.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. not sure, installing libgcj4-4.0.0-0.22 may be involved

Problem has seemed to go away on its own and I've been able to install updates
though it still has some problems with locking up, calling a futex with
FUTEX_WAIT shortly after trying to open /var/lib/rpm/Packages though I found
removing /var/lib/rpm/__db.00* solved this problem.

closing since this sounds like not a yum bug

marking as worksforme
