rpm segfaults during the removal of these two rpms.
# rpm -e jclasslib
Please have a look at the logfile attached.
Created attachment 326135 [details]
strace output of the command
I tried to rebuild the rpmdb but that didn't solve the problem
Neither package is in Fedora, you're talking about the packages from http://www.ej-technologies.com/ right? The packages are built with some "creatively" modified rpm apparently but no excuse for crashing, will fix...
Yes you're right the package is from ej-technologies.com.
I installed them with fc9, after upgrading to fc10 rpm/yum segfaults and I'm not able to get rid of the packages anymore.
Tanks for help in advance.
Ok, thanks for confirming that. This is now fixed upstream, along with some other issues caused by the weirdo packages, will be in Fedora shortly.
In the meanwhile, you can probably get rid of the packages by using --noscripts option as a workaround.
The weirdo packages are quite strange, not produced by
any rpmbuild I'm aware of because missing
tags. The lack of RPMTAG_SOURCEPACKAGE also
prevents header from being registered in rpmdb @rpm5.org,
so --erase segfaults are (by definition) impossible.
Perhaps jrpm produced ...
And LSB also has its own speshul perl script to produce
*.rpm packages that have randomly missing tag content.
So much for "standard" RPM packaging, software distribution
will sink back into tar/cpio archives instead of packages Real
Soon Now imho.
Thanks god the --noscript option made my day :-)
Thanks for the quick help!!
