Additional info:
Comment 1 Need Real Name 2001-09-04 12:44:31 EDT
Update: this happened after update to rpm 4.0.2 (rpm-4.0.2-6x.src.rpm)
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-09-04 12:52:38 EDT
Try rpm-4.0.3-0.57.6x from ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/test-4.0.3
as many (all I've seen) segfaults from bad headers are fixed there.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2002-06-21 15:50:26 EDT
Assuming problem fixed.
