Description Donna Robinson 2001-04-11 04:52:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1-0.1.9 i586)

output from gdb (after Ctrl C 'cos it hangs):
Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
0x4039edf4 in __poll (fds=0x8082780, nfds=2, timeout=-1) at
63      ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/poll.c: No such file or directory.
        in ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/poll.c

(gdb) where

    stack_end=0xbffff774) at ../sysdeps/generic/libc-start.c:129

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in as root
2. control-panel &
3. Click on button "Package Management"


Actual Results:  root:/mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS# control-panel
/usr/bin/glint: line 23: 16451 Segmentation fault      ./glint.py

( curse and type Ctrl-C yet again)

Expected Results:  well, a nice gui to hold my hand while i try to figure
out why redhat didn't install the freetype.h files in usr/include after
running rpm -i freetype-2.0.1-4.i386.rpm would have been nice

i just upgraded to RedHat 7.1 Beta 2 days ago.

Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2001-04-18 11:12:24 UTC
Errhh, maybe i'm using the wrong version, but even logging in as root doesn't
offer a 'Package Management' option in the control-panel.

Do you need some other tools (like gnorpm) installed for that to appear?

Otherwise i can't reproduce this problem and therefore not fix it... :)

Read ya, Phil

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2001-04-23 13:22:25 UTC
the errors outputs say that you have installed the old control-panel and glint
RPM package management tool from Redhat-5.x. Update the both packages from RHL
7.1 should fix this problem.
