Actual results:
crash with traceback

Expected results:

Additional info:
See atttached file probably more helpful than any information ( which is little
) that i have provided. The component listed in the traceback is listed as
software updated, this doesnt appear listed thus rpmdb was the next best thing.

This problem is with yum, so the component should be changed.
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2006-11-16 15:26:36 EST
what system is this on?

could you run:

rpm -q --whatprovides redhat-release 

for me?

Comment 4 Krisstoffer 2006-11-16 15:54:27 EST
this appears to fix it, it has come back once or twice.
rm /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm --repairddb

output of requested is:

the above happened on a fresh install without modification ( new repos etc etc
just "as is shipped"
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2006-12-03 13:44:45 EST
Segafualts and loss of data are likely due to removing an rpmdb environment
without correcting other problems in the rpmdb.

FYI: Most rpmdb "hangs" are now definitely fixed by purging stale read locks when opening
a database environment in rpm-4.4.8-0.4. There's more todo, but I'm quite sure that a
large class of problems with symptoms of "hang" are now corrected.

Detecting damaged by verifying when needed is well automated in rpm-4.4.8-0.4. Automatically 
correcting all possible damage is going to take more work, but a large class of problems is likely
already fixed in rpm-4.4.8-0.8 as well.

This last report appears identical to bug #224292. Ya'll should check it out.
The instructions regarding 'yum clean all' and then 'yum -y update' appear to
have worked for me (with my dump identical to your last one).

Reassigning to owner after bugzilla made a mess, sorry about the noise...
Comment 10 Panu Matilainen 2007-08-27 14:07:50 EDT
Apart from comment 6, the random crashes etc are almost certainly results of
kernel 2.6.18-19 mmap() bug.
