Description Wm.L.Scheding 2000-08-12 19:26:29 EDT
when I try to install the pam package it says:

[root@hippi todo]# rpm -Fvh ../rh62updates/rpm-3.0.5-9.6x.i386.rpm 
[root@hippi todo]# rpm -Fvh pam-0.72-20.i386.rpm 
Segmentation fault
[root@hippi todo]# rpm -v
RPM version 3.0.5

I think I got the latest pam installed OK; but I was being
sure. I just thought I would mention it.

I'm running 6.2 (Professional).
my box is a dual pentium w/ apache & pretty stock everything else.
recent upgrade from 6.1 CD.

Hope this helps

This works for me. That usually means that the seg fault is due to bad data in
the rpm database
that will be repaire if you do
	rpm --rebuilddb
If that doesn't fix the problem, please try installing as
	strace -o /tmp/xxx rpm -Fvv pam-0.72-20.i386.rpm
and reopen this bug with the output /tmp/xxx as attachment.
