3.6.12 causes segfaults in yum on ppc
Last modified: 2013-01-09 22:29:32 EST
When 3.6.12 is used in a rawhide chroot on ppc, yum tools segfault while reading the sqlite database. Downgrading back to 3.6.10 resolves this issue.

Seems this problem is seen outside of chroots as well, just updating sqlite on a rawhide system and attempting to do any yum transaction will cause the segfault.
Yup, sqlite 3.6.12 seems to be severely broken on ppc.
