Last modified: 2008-12-06 23:24:31 EST
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional info: In attachement - strace /usr/sbin/snmpd -f > strace.log 2>&1
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.
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?
Comitted to upstream.
Will be backported soon in F10 and rawhide.

rpm-4.6.0-0.rc1.8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
Would it be possible to have net-snmp rebuilt against rpm-4.6.0-0.rc1.8 and pushed out?
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.
