Please create an strace output of the RPM process to reveal where RPM actually
failed.

# strace rpm <parameters> 2> rpm_stderr.txt

Attach rpm_stderr.txt to this bug.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2002-12-21 00:54:37 UTC
Better than an strace:

Try using -ivv rather than -ivh, and attach output here

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-06-23 20:53:58 UTC
I can reproduce, upgraded from RedHat 8.0 with -Uvh glibc-common and then glibc
(both from 9.0 updates), all rpm commands thereafter will cause segmentation fault.

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2003-06-23 20:56:36 UTC
Ahem, all rpm -i and -e for package installation/removal commands, that is.
Have also tried the rpm rebuild procedure to no avail.
Please please help

Yeehaa! found the solution:
030623 *** Found clue in bugzilla #86197

 Download all the below RPMs
 rpm-4.2
 elfutils-0.76
 elfutils-libelf-0.76
 popt-1.7
 nscd-2.3.2

 Some pseudocode here
 cd /
 for each foo
   rpm2cpio /downloads/foo > /home/foo
   cpio -i < /home/foo
 do
030623 Reinstalled glibc-2.3.2-27-9

Now RPM works again, and the guy responsible for glibc not including the above
dependencies shall be b---slapped...
