Description John McHarry 2001-04-13 14:52:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)

After upgrading to rpm 4.0.2-6x kpackage no longer works.  Clicking on it 
appears to do nothing.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to rpm 4.0.2-6x
2. start kde
3. click on kpackage or click on an rpm file in the viewer


Actual Results:  nothing

Expected Results:  should have opened kpackage either showing what is 
installed, or showing the rpm selected

This seems consistent across a few machines.  Also, gnorpm no longer seems 
to work.

When logging out of X, my console has the following text on it, after the 
normal X startup messages:

"kpackage: error in loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/librpmbuild.so.0: 
undefined symbol: rpmGlobalMacroContext"
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-07-29 12:14:39 EDT
Rebuilding kpackage will fix your problem. The more general
fix, getting a solid ABI into rpmlib so that an upgrade of rpm
doesn't break existing executables is underway, but is gonna
take a while to deploy to Red Hat 6x platforms.
