Description mw 2001-04-19 21:54:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Both trying to install from a local harddrive or via ftp, I get the 7.0 ->
7.1 upgrade 
abort during "finding packages to be upgraded".  The URL contains the
floppy dum anaconda offered.  I'd like to add that now rpm dumps core
whenever I try to install *any* package.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert boot.img floppy
2. press RET at boot:.
3. after selecting "Upgrade existing install", just wait a bit...

Actual Results:  crash

Expected Results:  installation proceed normally

I'd like to add that now rpm dumps core whenever I try to install *any*

# rpm -Uvh mouseconfig-4.21-1.i386.rpm 
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

# rpm -Uvh pam-*                       
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

This is with the old (7.0's ?) rpm:

# rpm -q rpm

Jeff, is this the same problem with corrupted RPM databases that we saw a few
months ago?

Can you attach the complete debug message?
