I'm using kernel 2.2.17-4.
I get a segmentation fault from up2date.
With GNOME I get a Message-Dialog with python segmentation fault.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date -l or up2date -u
Actual Results: >up2date -l
Retrieving list of all available packages...
Removing installed packages from list of updates...
Removing packages marked to skip from list...
Getting headers for available packages...
Removing packages with files marked to skip from list...
segmentation fault (core dumped)
Please verify that your versions of rpm and rpm-python are in sync. Those being
out of sync are the only situations where I have seen seg faults like this.
>rpm -q up2date python python-xmlrpc rpm rpm-python
I also tried to reinstall (with rpm -i --force) the packages.
This did not solve the Problem.
I've a recompiled kernel. Perhaps a kernel configuratin Problem?

After browsing thru the other dep copys I found the fix in 34900.
For convenience I repeat the fix.
Yes, freshing the rpm-python package fixed the up2date error.
rpm -Fvh rpm-python-4.0.2-7x.i386.rpm
Problem RESOLVED! Thanks! Sebastian
