Description Martin Cohen 2002-08-23 12:10:46 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
I tried to follow bug 38454 because had the rpm -qa segfault listed there.

I followed the steps until the db_dump Packages.old | db_load Packages thing ...
i tried to dump to the console to see what it does.
Absolutely nothing.  i see its working (sort of) and leaved it alone for two 
hours until decided to do something about it.
I checked some docs and found the "-r" repair option and worked so i tried 
again with db_dump Packages.old -r | db_load Packages

and finished !
But rpm -qa continue segfaulting.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. db_dump Packages-ORIG | db_load Packages

Actual Results:  Nothing at all

Expected Results:  return an error at least

Additional info:

db_dump 3.1.17
rpm 4.0.2
Red Hat 7.1

OK, I did a rebuilddb with rpm-4.1, that seems
to have fixed most everything (although ~6-7 headers
were discarded).

The fixed copy of your Packages file is at
Download and install by doing
	cd /var/lib
	mv rpm/Packages rpm-Packages-SAVE
	tar xzvf rpmdb-72411-FIX.tar.gz
	rpm --rebuilddb -vv
and verify by doing
	rpm -qa
