This happens to me too.  I spent some time debugging, and I'm pretty convinced it is an upstreams bug in the inclusion of RPM header files:


Assuming you hit the same problem as I do, a workaround is to add "-I -hr_swinst" to the options in /etc/sysconfig/snmpd

I can confirm the issue. I tried to catch it here: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F10/FEDORA-2008-10451 but it got puched just after I entered that comment.
Comment 3 Jan Safranek 2008-12-01 04:55:11 EST
It's fallout of new rpm-4.6. I didn't notice getRpmPath() moved to rpmfileutil.h. The compiler does not find it -> it assumes 'int' is returned -> something very bad happens on x86_64.

Panu, could you add #include<rpmfileutil.h> to rpmmacros.h?
Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2008-12-01 06:17:34 EST
Comitted to upstream.

Will be backported soon in F10 and rawhide.

Comment 7 Major Hayden 2008-12-03 20:41:08 EST
Would it be possible to have net-snmp rebuilt against rpm-4.6.0-0.rc1.8 and pushed out?

Comment 8 Jan Safranek 2008-12-04 03:54:11 EST
The fixed rpm got to the koji buildroot this night, I'm compiling net-snmp right now. There are processes around and it takes some time to release fixed rpms.
