Description Lance A. Brown 2001-06-14 03:32:46 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i586; Nav)

Description of problem:
After doing an initial install of Ximian Gnome 1.4 I am now receiving the
following assertion failure from use of rpm that modifies the rpm
databases:

rpm: header.c:259: regionSwab: Assertion `ie.info.type >= 0 && ie.info.type
<= 9' failed.

This appears to be happening to the libxml-1.8.13-ximian.2 package.


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'rpm -qa' 
The listing will stop after displaying libxml-1.8.13-ximian.2 and present
the Assertion failure.
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  ...
rep-gtk-gnome-0.15-ximian.4
helix-sweetpill-1.0-ximian.2
imlib-1.9.10-ximian.2
libxml-1.8.13-ximian.2
rpmq: header.c:259: regionSwab: Assertion `ie.info.type >= 0 &&
ie.info.type <= 9' failed.
Aborted


Expected Results:  Should have completed without error.

Try doing a --rebuilddb with a recent version of rpm-4.0.3 from Raw Hide, as all
the ximian induced problems that I've been able to capture are fixed
there.
