Description David Stuart 2003-01-29 18:23:15 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
I was hoping you might be able to help me with a little problem. I just upgraded
from RH 7.2 to RH 7.3, and after doing this, "rpm -e" is segfaulting (making it
tough for me to remove some unnecessary rpms)..

For example:

[root@cpe008[root@cpe0080c6f8615f Downloads]# rpm -e NVIDIA_GLX
Segmentation fault

[root@cpe0[root@cpe0080c6f8615f Downloads]# rpm -V rpm
.....UG. c /var/lib/rpm/__db.001
.....UG. c /var/lib/rpm/__db.002

There's only those two files at issue within rpm itself (but that's just a group
ownership thing). I've tried removing them and doing a --rebuilddb, but it
didn't fix the problem.

[root@cpe0080c6f8615f Downloads]# rpm --query rpm
rpm-4.0.4-7x.18

[root@cpe0080c6f8615f lib]# rpm -vv -e NVIDIA_GLX

output from a "rpm --rebuilddb -vv"

At the request of Jeff Johnson <jbj@redhat.com>, I have added the output of an
rpm --rebuilddb -vv

Comment 3 David Stuart 2003-01-29 18:50:31 UTC
See the URL field for a link to my rpm database

Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2003-01-30 18:28:10 UTC
Hmmm, after adding the Red Hat GPG key
    rpm --import /usr/share/doc/rpm-4*/RPM-GPG-KEY
all available signatures verify during --rebuilddb.

I've deleted the NVIDIA_GLX package, you'll need to
erase the files manually (file list attached).

A tarball of your database with NVIDIA_GLX is at
    ftp://people.redhat.com/jbj/rpmdb-83033-FIX.tar.gz

Download and install by doing
    cd /var/lib
    mv rpm rpm-SAVE
    tar xzvf rpmdb-83033-FIX.tar.gz
    rpm --rebuilddb -vv
You should install the public key
    rpm --import /usr/share/doc/rpm-4*/RPM-GPG-KEY
and verify by doing
    rpm -qavv

Then remove the NVIDIA_GLX files by downloading
the attachment, and doing (as root)
    rm -i `cat files-83033.list`

Reopen if further problems, as there may be something
else causing the segfault.
