Description Need Real Name 2001-05-18 15:15:56 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.4 i686)

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.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --erase gnome-core

Actual Results:  Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-20 09:14:03 EDT
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
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-05-21 13:45:08 EDT
Loaded rpm 4.0.2 from rpm.org
It gave stupid messages about  'db1' until I did an
 rpm --rebuilddb
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
