Description Michal Nowak 2009-09-14 09:00:28 UTC
Description of problem:

When bug 523140 is trigged, but via debuginfo-installit spits this horrible traceback:

newman abrt-root $ sudo debuginfo-install totem
rpmdb: Thread/process 25047/3087275712 failed: Thread died in Berkeley DB library
error: db4 error(-30974) from dbenv->failchk: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 -  (-30974)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/config.py:894: DeprecationWarning: BaseException.message has been deprecated as of Python 2.6
  raise Errors.YumBaseError("Error: " + e.message)

  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 242, in _getConfig
    startupconf = config.readStartupConfig(fn, root)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/config.py", line 798, in readStartupConfig
    startupconf.releasever = _getsysver(startupconf.installroot, startupconf.distroverpkg)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/config.py", line 894, in _getsysver
    raise Errors.YumBaseError("Error: " + e.message)
yum.Errors.YumBaseError: Error: rpmdb open failed

Can it be shaped in some way to one line error msg?

Same root cause has been fixed in 523140. However, having debuginfo-install do a better job catching errors is still on the list.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 12:21:13 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

YumBaseError catching was fixed in yum-3.2.26.
