Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-20 08:59:19 EDT
The missing fields are from the specspo package, and indicate that the
corresponding text is untranslated. Verify by running in the C locale.

Either uninstall the specspo package (where the untranslated text is resident)
or arrange for rpm to run in the C locale.
Comment 2 Olivier Baudron 2001-05-20 12:46:46 EDT
I don't have specspo installed, and could not resolve the problem.
Feel free to log on my PC:

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-20 12:49:18 EDT
What does the following say
	export LANG=C
	export LC_ALL=C
	rpm -qi rpm
Comment 4 Olivier Baudron 2001-05-20 12:54:23 EDT
It says the same as above...
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-20 13:04:08 EDT
Do you have a file /etc/rpm/macros.specspo? If so, remove it, and try
the query again. If that doesn't work, reinstall the rpm packages, first
verifying that the tags do, indeed, exist in the package you're installing:
	rpm -qip rpm-*.i386.rpm
Comment 6 Olivier Baudron 2001-05-20 13:16:09 EDT
/etc/rpm/ is empty.
Moreover the fields show none in all packages that I query (installed or not
installed): rpm -qip *.i386.rpm always shows (none).

By the way, I just downgrade to rpm*-4.0.3-0.12.i386 and now it works again!
However rpm*-4.0.3-0.22.i386 does not...
Comment 7 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-20 13:19:03 EDT
Then there's some problem/incompatibility with the i18n routines used
agianst which rpm-4.0.3-0.22 was linked.
Comment 8 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-20 14:06:20 EDT
No, there's a missing return code in intGetEntry, fixed in rpm-4.0.3-0.24.
