Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 470631
Last modified: 2008-11-13 11:03:02 EST
Description of problem: /usr/bin/pup crashed and left system unstble. Several libraries (librpm-4.4.so, libdb4.6.so) were missing after the crash so restore of system was difficult without a working rpm and sendmail would not start without libdb4.6.so
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
What were you upgrading from/to?
I was running Fedora 9 but after the upgrade /etc/fedora-release was changed to 9.93 (Rawhide)
Each week I run the Software Updater (/usr/bin/pup). I saw that there was a kernel update and so I chose that by itself, updated the system and rebooted. Re-ran Software Updater and chose all the packages shown to me. During the update Software Updater crashed creating the log file I posted. During the recovery process I noticed that my system had been updated to (the pre-release of) Fedora 10.
I did not make a specific choice of updating to Fedora 10 because on this box I was waiting for the stable release.
How were you running pup on Fedora 9? In Fedora 9, we moved to the use of PackageKit instead of pup/pirut?
From the launcher I choose Software Updater. I did notice on a newer installation that Fedora 9 now uses PackageKit. If I notice in Software Updater that I am presented with modules for which a reboot is recommended, I download these on their own, reboot the system and then install the rest.
How did you install/upgrade to Fedora 9? pup really shouldn't have been left
And I suspect that the root cause of your problems are API changes in the underlying system that aren't reflected in the old version of pup you had available :/
Since the crash, I have been using yum in "manual mode" and just recently installed PackageKit with the gnome interface.
