Description of problem:
After update to RH7.1--->
rpm seg faults when doing 'rpm --erase'. In some cases, I ran rpm
and I could then remove the package, but in some cases (e.g. below)
this does not help:
[root@marmot /root]# rpm -q gnome-core
[root@marmot /root]# rpm -e gnome-core
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
"rpm -q rpm" gives
"which rpm" gives
and "rpm --version" gives
RPM version 4.0
I'd give you some more information, but given that rpm is 'stripped'
not much more to be had.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --erase gnome-core
Actual Results: Segmentation fault (core dumped)
You appear not to have upgraded to rpm-4.0.2, and you will need to do that.
Where did you get gnome-core from, ximian?
At this poing you will probably have to install rpm using rpm2cpio or from
tar ball at ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/dist/rpm-4.0.x
Loaded rpm 4.0.2 from rpm.org
It gave stupid messages about 'db1' until I did an
It now seems functional.
Note, the broken rpm, and all the .rpms it core dumped
on, came from RH7.1 -- sounds like RH needs an
update to 7.1
