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