Description Evgeny 2007-03-06 10:12:54 EST
Description of problem:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.4.2-37.el5

How reproducible:
remove %_rpmlock_path from macros. And try to remove package.

  
Actual results:
segmentation fault


Additional info:
from lib/rpmlock.c

            char * t = rpmGenPath(rootdir, rpmlock_path_default, NULL);
            if (t == NULL || *t == '\0' || *t == '%')
                t = RPMLOCK_PATH;
            rpmlock_path = xstrdup(t);
            t = _free(t);

when macros rpmlock_path_default is not defined, t will be equal constant
RPMLOCK_PATH. Call free() for constant is not good idea.
as solution:
- t = RPMLOCK_PATH;
+ t = strdup(RPMLOCK_PATH);
