Description Vladimir Kondratiev 2001-05-22 12:50:24 EDT
Description of Problem:
In rpm packege rpm-4.0.3-0.22, in /usr/lib/librpm.so.0, symbol
fpHashFunction is missing. Due to this, 'kpackage' and 'gnorpm' can not start.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'kpackage' or 'gnorpm'

Additional Information:
rpm -qf `which kpackage`
rpm -qf `which gnorpm`
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-22 12:53:15 EDT
Yup, you're running unreleased development code, caveat emptor.

Either use rpm-4.0.2 or recompile kpackage/gnorpm from sources.
Comment 2 Vladimir Kondratiev 2001-05-22 13:41:31 EDT
No one of the packages mentioned can be rebuild. I filled separate bugs for
these packages, but I suppose root cause is rpm.
see bugs 41860 and 41861
Comment 3 Vladimir Kondratiev 2001-05-30 08:09:27 EDT
bug is still there:
[]# rpm -q kdeadmin rpm
[]# kpackage 
kpackage: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/librpm.so.0: undefined
symbol: fpHashFunction
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-30 08:22:15 EDT
Yes the bug will persist until you relink kpackage against rpm-4.0.3

Have you tried the kdeadmin package at

Otherwise, you need to use rpm-4.0.2, not rpm-4.0.3 ...
Comment 5 Vladimir Kondratiev 2001-05-30 09:47:55 EDT
You are right, if I rebuild kdeadmin from sources, 'kpackage' do work.
The only question remains - why binary package on rawhide ftp do not corresponds
to the source package, but this is question for kdeadmin package itself.
