Description Draciron 2006-12-16 14:13:06 UTC
Description of problem:

Constant RPM problems since going with FC6.  Did a fresh install of FC6. Then
updated with Yum. Then installed the rest of my normal packages. Left gnome-yum
up overnight once and yumupdate daemon was enabled. Tried to finish the installs
and the rpm database was hopelessly corrupted. Rebuilt the database and reran
the packages I wanted to install and things were good for a few days. Then doing
a yum update from the command line it went away and for 2 days I let it churn
before killing the process. Removed all the locks and was able to install ONLY
by removing locks for a time. Then had to rebuild the database. This most recent
rebuilddb effort lasted all of 2 days before the database was hopelessly
corrupted again. Still have yet to finish updating packages. Now when I try to
rebuild the DB I get a seg fault. 

When I ps for rpm these processes are ones I typically kill before removing the
locks and rebuilding the db. 
/usr/lib/rpm/rpmq -q --all --queryformat Name   :%{NAME}\nArch  
:%{ARCH}\nVersion:%{VERSION}\nRelease:%{RELEASE}\nSize   :%{SIZE}\nRepo  

/usr/lib/rpm/rpmq -q --all --qf %{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}.rpm\n

/bin/sh /etc/cron.daily/rpm

I normally have several copies of each. All sleeping processes, some started 3
or 4 days ago. 

I shut down the yum-updatesd daemon and made sure it was stopped thinking it was
the problem. This did not help.
