rpm crashes with 'segmentation fault':

rpm -e <package_name>

but can run sometimes.

I ran it under 'gdb' and got a backtrace, etc. If you need it I'll send it.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2001-10-23 12:25:42 EDT
Can you attach a pointer to your database? rpm databases are
too large for bugzilla attachments.

Closed for lack of input.
