Description of problem:
During upgrade process (from kernel-2.4.2-2) the following error message
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.53825: line 1: 4231 Segmentation fault (core
'rpm -V kernel-2.4.3-12' returns no messages
'rpm -q kernel-2.4.3-12' returns 'kernel-2.4.3-12'
The new kernel boots and all services appear to run.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e --allmatches --justdb --nodeps kernel-2.4.3-12
2. rpm -ivh --justdb kernel-2.4.3-12.i386.rpm
Actual Results: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.39096: line 1: 4255 Segmentation
fault (core dumped) /usr/sbin/module_upgrade
Expected Results: No error message.
I noticed this same type of error when upgrading the kernel. I tried
several time, but finally re-booted the system and it worked. I
subsequently noticed multiple 'kernel-2.4.3-12' entries using 'rpm -q
kernel-2.4.3-12'. I then executed the commands above to remove the
multiple entries from the database and re-install.
This is (or was) a problem with /usr/sbin/module_upgrade.
Adding --noscripts with "rpm -ivh" would probably avoid
I don't see any way to reproduce this problem, hence WONTFIX.
