Description thomas.sluyter 1999-04-21 03:10:32 EDT
This problem occured while running Package Manager on RH5.2
on an Alpha. I have also found this to happen on RH5.0 on
Intel. Anyway, here's the deal:

Whenever I try to use the 'uninstall' button in RH's
package manager (X control panel) it in fact does start a
copy of rpm, but it goes zombie on me in about a second.

Similar problems have occured while using the 'install'
Comment 1 thomas.sluyter 1999-04-21 03:13:59 EDT
(I was using rpm ver 2.5.5 when these problems arose)
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-05-14 15:50:59 EDT
This is not an rpm bug. Make sure you have the latest errata update
for glint installed. Please reopen this bug if your problems persist.
