Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 22807
Installed packages are marked as 'not installed'
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:21 EDT
Well, I did a fairly stupid thing - I installed rpm-4.0.2 from rawhide
on my Redhat 7.0 machine and the reinstalled back original rpm-4.0.
Unfortunately in the between I installed several packages with rpm-4.0.2
Now, after reverting to rpm-4.0 all those packages work , but
rpm -q -i shows they are marked as 'not installed'. And I cannot remove
or update them ! rpm -U (-e) fails with 'segmentation fault'.
The irony is of course that rpm-4.0 package itself is of course among those
and I cannot remove it or update back to rpm-4.0.2.
Quite unfortunately critical glibc packages are among those affected.
Any ideas what I can do ???
FIrst try to identify what packages were installed using rpm-4.0.2 by doing "rpm
Sooner or later, those packages should be reinstalled.
Try rpm-4.0.1-0.x from ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/test-4.0.1, the problems you
have been fixed there. Let me know if that works, and I'll have further
suggestions about what
