Description fortytwo 1999-12-06 08:40:54 UTC
If rpm is called with a "-qp" option and given the name of a non-existant
file, it will crash like this:

[fortytwo@manetheren dl]$ rpm -q rpm
rpm-3.0.4-0.1
[fortytwo@manetheren dl]$ rpm --version
RPM version 3.0.4
[fortytwo@manetheren dl]$ rpm -qip feh
open of feh failed: No such file or directory
rpm: rpmio.c:2398: Fclose: Assertion `fd && fd->magic == 0xbeefdead'
failed.
Aborted (core dumped)
[fortytwo@manetheren dl]$

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-12-08 13:06:59 UTC
Thanks for the patch. This is already fixed as
            if (fd)
                Fclose(fd);
If you're interested in helping to debug rpm-3.0.4, please check Raw Hide often
for updates as there will be lots of fixes in the next 2-3 weeks.

Otherwise, you're probably better off reverting to the production rpm-3.0.3.
