Description tom georgoulias 2002-08-31 13:45:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020826

Description of problem:
I cannot verify the MD5 or GPG signature of an RPM, rpm simply seg faults:
[tomg@gemini rawhide]$ cd /opt/RPMS/rawhide/
[tomg@gemini rawhide]$ ls -ld vte*
-rw-r--r--    1 tomg     tomg       464141 Aug 29 21:52 vte-0.8.11-1.i386.rpm
-rw-r--r--    1 tomg     tomg       464464 Aug 30 21:30 vte-0.8.13-1.i386.rpm
-rw-r--r--    1 tomg     tomg       460675 Aug 26 17:15 vte-0.8.7-1.i386.rpm
[tomg@gemini rawhide]$ rpm -K vte-0.8.11-1.i386.rpm                            
Segmentation fault
[tomg@gemini rawhide]$

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Apply all errata for null
2. rpm -K RPM

Actual Results:  rpm has a segmentation fault

Expected Results:  Srpm should have verified the MD5 sum and GPG signature of a
given RPM.

Additional info:

[tomg@gemini rawhide]$ rpm -qa | grep rpm                                      
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-08-31 13:50:58 EDT
This is fixed in rpm-4.1-1.04 and later.
Meanwhile, I'm gonna use this as a category bug.
Comment 2 tom georgoulias 2002-09-02 11:13:33 EDT
Are those pkgs available somewhere?  Or should I wait for them to appear in rawhide?
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2002-09-02 11:37:58 EDT
Try the Raw Hide packages, I believe the
problem is also fixed there. Meanwhile,
I dunno when rpm packages will be available,
but ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/test-4.1
is a good place to check.
Comment 4 tom georgoulias 2002-09-02 13:36:43 EDT
The rawhide pkgs work (rpm-4.1-1.02 & friends):

[tomg@gemini rawhide]$ rpm -K vte-0.8.13-1.i386.rpm                            
vte-0.8.13-1.i386.rpm: (sha1) dsa sha1 md5 gpg OK
