RPM 4.0.2 Segmentation fault on "rpm --rebuilddb"
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:40 EDT
Description of Problem:
I am experiencing the same problem many people have reported on rpm 4.0.2 after upgrading to it, viz. the segmentation fault appearing on
querying the database past a specific package, or trying to rebuild it.
My database is still in db1 format and attached as a tar.gz file - is there some simple fix?
I read the message in the Yahoo rpm-list group from Jeff asking a user to submit a bugreport with such a tar-file attached. Of course, if everyone
start doing that it will create a right mess, but please forgive me for trying... I need my rpm to work!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to rpm 4.0.2
2. rpm --rebuilddb
Created attachment 20962 [details]
My rpm-db from /var/lib/rpm
Can you attach a pointer (i.e. URL) to the tarball please? bugzilla
attachments have an upper size limit taht is too small for rpm
databases. Thanks ...
Many thanks for your swift reply. The file in question can be found at
A --rebuilddb with a recent version of rpm-4.0.3 from Raw Hide will fix your
