Description of problem:
Accidentially deleted /usr/src/linux02.4.18-5/ before removing the files inside
with "rpm -e kernel-source"
Tried to rpm -e kernel-source afterwards, and get a "segmentation fault".
I've tried rpm -e --justdb with the same results.
even rpm -ivh or -Uvh result in the same seg fault. I've also tried rpm
--rebuilddb thinking the problem might be there.
The only thing that doesn't seg fault when dealing with that rpm file is "rpm
--verify" that just shows all the files as "missing".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rm -r /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-5
2.rpm -e kernel-source
Actual Results: Segmentation fault
Expected Results: kernel-source rpm should have been removed from the rpm database.
RPM version 4.0.4
What happens if you do rpm --rebuilddb?
Please add -vv to your erase command as well.
Sorry, I overlooked that you've tried --rebuilddb.
If you give me a pointer (i.e. a URL, attachments won't work)
to a tarball of your database
tar czvf /tmp/rpmdb.tar.gz rpm
I'll see if I can get you a fix.
I did a Microsoft-standard fix.. I rebooted the server and all is well. I
could try to do the same thing again and see if it seg faults again if you want.
No, please don't :-) But reopen the bug if the
