Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 227326
deltarpm dumprpmheader corrupts rpm database
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
deltarpm destroys the rpmDB when generating a RPM out of a deltarpm and the
installed RPM. This is due to an error in rpmdumpheader, which does not close
the RPM DB correctly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/bin/rpmdumpheader kpartx-0.4.7-8.el5 > /dev/null
2. rpm -Uvh any_rpm.rpm will stall
This is already known by Michael Schröder, the upstream maintainer. And he will
incorporate the patch into his version.
In the meanwhile, we should patch our version.

rpmdump header patch
Reassigning. [Why is owners.list not propagated into bugzilla?]
Fixed in deltarpm 3.3-6 in both FC6 and devel. Thanks!
