Description Daniel Resare 2003-02-15 11:21:45 UTC
Description of problem:

When trying to track down the lockup problems in #81645 i ran into some
semi-reproducible segfaults from rpm.

The operations i try is to upgrade packages on a phoebe2 system to latest
rawhide. For example when i try 'rpm -Uvh libxml*' it segfaults
repoducibly now. If i try 'rpm -Uvh libxml2*' i get hit by #81645 instead.

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

How reproducible:
sometimes, when it segfaults once it often does that the next time you try also,

Additional info:
I managed to get a stacktrace of the segfault.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-02-20 16:27:24 UTC
I can't "semi-reproduce" this bug, the command
    rpm -Uvh libxml*
upgrades fine for me.

If you want me to look further, then I need the output
of the "rpm -Uvv ..." command that segfaults, and "rpm -qa" to
figger what you have installed.

Comment 2 Daniel Resare 2003-02-22 22:44:45 UTC
I can't reproduce myself since i did 'rpm --rebuilddb'. Perhaps someone else has
an rpm db in this state that can help with the debugging.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2003-02-25 00:07:20 UTC
I cannot reproduce this problem.
