Description Tethys 2000-09-04 20:02:59 EDT
When trying to erase the fonttastic font server rpm shipped with CorelDRAW
9 beta 2,
rpm dumped core:

leto:~# rpm --erase fonttastic-glibc-2.1-2000.
Stopping the font server (if any)
Removing log file
(Ignore any subsequent errors about failing to remove files)
Removing links for init
Removing log file
cannot read packages named fonttastic-glibc-2.1 for uninstall
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I doubt a stack trace will be of use without debugging symbols, but just in

leto:~# gdb /bin/rpm core

Core was generated by `rpm --erase fonttastic-glibc-2.1-2000.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

Note that I accidentally typed the name of the package to be removed twice. 
I don't know if this has a bearing on anything or not, but I tried removing
of the standard rpms that I don't use (joe-2.8-24), and it didn't dump
even when repeated twice on the command line.
