Had to remove beagle and f-spot

rpm -e beagle f-spot
rpm -Uvh --oldpackage sqlite-3.2.8-1.i386.rpm

Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2006-02-01 15:25:22 UTC
Thanks for the report - replicated here, and seen in the installer too.

Chris did you test yum with updated sqlite?

Comment 4 Christopher Aillon 2006-02-01 15:28:47 UTC
Actually, yes.  I yum updated yesterday with the new package I built, so I don't
see the issue.  Since harald said that 3.3.2 worked, I just posted that RPM here
since it never was released:

Comment 5 Paul Nasrat 2006-02-01 15:40:22 UTC
My reproducer that Chris has confirmed:

yum update sqlite
yum clean all
yum list updates 

Comment 6 Milan Kerslager 2006-02-01 15:55:58 UTC
I'm confirming the bug in sqlite too. Downgrading yum did not help. Downgrading
sqlite fixed the problem:

sqlite-3.2.7-2.1.i386.rpm (from FCtest2) yum works
sqlite-3.3.2-1.i386.rpm (from comment #4) yum works

Comment 7 Kostas Georgiou 2006-02-01 16:07:31 UTC
Another reproducer: 
python /usr/share/doc/python-sqlite-1.1.6/examples/converters.py
It fails at cu.execute("create table test(p point, n int)")

Comment 8 Paul Nasrat 2006-02-01 16:16:44 UTC
Kostas - Thanks for the pointer to the smaller reproducer
Milan - Thanks for the confirmation of working status.

Comment 9 Paul Nasrat 2006-02-01 16:26:16 UTC
import sqlite
db = sqlite.connect("test")
cur = db.cursor()
cur.execute("""CREATE TABLE db_info ( dbversion TEXT, checksum TEXT) """)

Comment 10 Paul Nasrat 2006-02-01 16:32:21 UTC
This works:

sqlite> .schema db_info
CREATE TABLE db_info (
foo TEXT, bar TEXT);

python-sqlite fails to create tables.

Comment 11 Paul Nasrat 2006-02-01 19:02:59 UTC
Root cause by this changeset:


python-sqlite was using 0 for nBytes.  Changing to -1 in python-sqlite fixes.

first issue

ive just removed digikam and its dependencies. Isn't there any other solution
than downgrading?

Comment 16 Justin Conover 2006-02-01 23:41:03 UTC
Grab the version from test2 and rpm -ivh --oldpackage and you'll be fine.

Comment 17 Justin Conover 2006-02-01 23:42:53 UTC
(In reply to comment #16)
> Grab the version from test2 and rpm -ivh --oldpackage and you'll be fine.

rpm -Uvh --oldpackage sqlite-3.2.8-1.i386.rpm

patch for python-sqlite

Thanks to Paul Nasrat for finding the bug (comment #11).  yum is working fine
after installing python-sqlite recompiled with this patch.  By the way, newer
versions of python-sqlite are available at http://pysqlite.org/

Comment 22 Lonni J Friedman 2006-02-07 22:13:22 UTC
Can someone clue me in on where I can get this 3.2.8-1 older version of sqlite?
 I just scoured the FC ftp server, and I don't see sqlite-3.2.8-1 anywhere.  All
I've found is 3.3.3-1 (bad) and 3.2.7-2.1 (old).

Comment 23 Christopher Aillon 2006-02-07 22:18:38 UTC
sqlite 3.3.3-1 is not bad, python-sqlite is.  get the version from comment 12 or

Comment 24 Milan Kerslager 2006-02-07 22:20:24 UTC
Install python-sqlite-1.1.6-3 and you should be fine with sqlite-3.3.3-1:


Comment 25 Lonni J Friedman 2006-02-07 22:49:46 UTC
Thanks, that worked for me as a workaround.
