Description of problem:
rpm crashes when installing/upgrading certain rpms all at once.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): rpm-4.1-1.06
Steps to Reproduce:
In this example I was installing enlightenment window manager on the system (I
know it's old, but I like it). I saw this problem when installing a few other
programs as well on various computers with a fairly unmodified configuration.
1. Download the following rpms from rpmfind.net and put them in their own
enlightenment-0.16.5-1.i386.rpm (I got this one from the enlightenment.org website)
2. Type the following command: rpm -Uvh *.rpm --nodeps
3. rpm crashes with a segfault.
4. Installing each of the rpms individually instead of grouped together does
not yield a segfault.
When installing these same rpms in the exact same manor on RedHat 7.3 everything
is installed as expected. I also tried passing rpm the --rebuilddb option which
didn't affect anything.
You're downloading packages (fnlib at least)
from 1999 produced by rpm-3.0. Rebuild from
src.rpm's if you want these bits
