Description of problem:
When trying to up2date I got:
Fetching Obsoletes list for channel: rhel-i386-as-4...
Fetching rpm headers...
*** glibc detected *** realloc(): invalid pointer: 0x0a17faec
The pointer address changes each time (0x0a17faec)...
In the /var/log/up2date I get :
[Wed Nov 9 14:28:20 2005] up2date updating login info
[Wed Nov 9 14:28:20 2005] up2date logging into up2date server
[Wed Nov 9 14:28:24 2005] up2date successfully retrieved authentication token from up2date server
[Wed Nov 9 14:28:24 2005] up2date availablePackageList from network
[Wed Nov 9 14:28:24 2005] up2date Unable to import repomd support so repomd support will not be available
I mv'ed all the file's in /var/spool/up2date and tried updating again - and it worked as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Havent tried - but I assume if I mv the files back to /var/spool/up2date
2.It may crash again. I still have the files.
