I was updating openssh on ones from
When I issued the command
rpm -Uvh /tmp/ss/openssh-2.5.1p1-1.i386.rpm

crashed and dumped core.
the gdb trace is below:

This GDB was configured as "i386-redhat-linux"...(no debugging symbols
Core was generated by `rpm -Uvh /tmp/ss/openssh-2.5.1p1-1.i386.rpm
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

The debugging symbols in rpm are stripped, but you can probably
re-link rpm with debugging symbols.

Second time rpm -Uvh --force ...
everything went through OK.
It was a problem only first time when I was upgrading openssh-2.3.0p1-4

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2001-02-25 11:43:30 EST

Verfiied as fixed in rpm-4.0.2.
