[abrt] crash in rpm-4.8.0-14.fc13: Process /bin/rpm was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
Last modified: 2010-08-23 20:09:01 EDT
abrt 1.1.0 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: rpm -qa
reason: Process /bin/rpm was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
release: Fedora release 13 (Goddard)
I removed the __db files and tried to use 'rpm --rebuilddb' and it also crashes. It did not complete the rebuild of the __db files.
Also getting strange errors I've never seen before.
This error occured while installing an application using yum.
error: rpmdbNextIterator: skipping h# 1518 region trailer: BAD, tag 1869873266 type 1869575168 offset -1919905652 count 7499631
This error started happening out of the blue I have no idea what has changed to cause this. No recent system updates. System was working fine after last update.
How to reproduce
1.run rpm -qa foo or anything that accesses the rpmdb

UPDATE: A reboot seems to have cured it but I still have no idea what was causing the problems.
Never able to reproduce. Assuming it was just a fluke. Closing bug.
