Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2002-08-12 17:44:30 EDT
can you get a strace of that?
Comment 2 Michael Young 2002-08-12 19:02:12 EDT
I seem to recall you can get a segmentation fault by running /usr/sbin/up2date
-l directly (rather than via /usr/bin/up2date) with this broken version of up2date.
Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2002-08-12 19:07:16 EDT
Hmm, seems to work for me with 2.9.40'ish code. 

No idea how running it as /usr/sbin/up2date would cause
a segfault. I have seen weirder things though...
Comment 4 Ivo Sarak 2002-08-13 01:34:18 EDT
I can 'strace' it but what script I should run?
Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2002-08-13 17:00:38 EDT
strace /usr/sbin/up2date  -u


should do it
Comment 6 Ivo Sarak 2002-08-14 04:17:07 EDT
Sorry but I already made a upgrade to newer rpm&up2date from RawHide and up2date
does not crash for me anymore.

[root@machine up2date]# rpm -qa|grep rpm-
rpm-4.1-0.77
rpm-build-4.1-0.77
rpm-python-4.1-0.77
rpm-devel-4.1-0.77
gnorpm-0.96-14
[root@machine up2date]# rpm -qa|grep up2date
up2date-2.9.40-7.x.9
up2date-gnome-2.9.40-7.x.9
[root@machine up2date]#

> can you get a strace of that?

Adrian, the 2.9.33 version is the one from Limbo beta2 upgrades. It has been
reported earlier that this version would terminate _silently_ upon checking
dependencies. No traceback at all. There have been other bug reports about this.
Comment 8 Michael Schwendt 2002-08-16 19:35:28 EDT
Hence it is most likely a duplicate of bug #70871 (CLOSED because it works again
with 2.9.38) and probably also bug #71047 (still open).
Comment 9 Adrian Likins 2002-08-21 13:54:08 EDT
seems to be working now, closing
