Description Pekka Pietikäinen 2001-05-09 08:41:50 EDT
Description of Problem:

I managed to find a corrupt RPM on a local rawhide mirror that
causes rpm to segfault when it is processed. The 
same file from another mirror works ok. 

How Reproducible:

rpm -qlp apacheconf-0.7-2.i386.rpm (file included with report)

Actual Results:

Segmentation fault

Expected Results:

In the case of corrupted packages, report the package as corrupt and not

I just checked in a change to prevent the segfault, should be in rpm-4.0.3-0.20
