Description Ted Kaczmarek 2003-04-22 07:24:24 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401

Description of problem:
If I have an nfs mount on my RH9 box, rpm will segafault. After unmounting the
nfs dir it no longer segfaults.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download wine-20030408-1rh8winehq.i686.rpm fom sourceforge
2. Try to do an rpm -Uvh on it

Actual Results:  Segfault

Expected Results:  Installs

Additional info:

Only happens when nfs mount is mounted, unmounting it rpm sorta works.
Still hangs, kill -9, rm __db* then try again it works.

FWIW, I run rpm with NFS mounts all the time.

Does the segfault reappear when you remount the NFS volume?

WHat's different abou that particular mount point?
Comment 2 Ted Kaczmarek 2003-04-22 10:03:16 EDT
I found some babdlocks on a swap partition, I will have create a new swap and
try this again.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2003-04-23 11:27:36 EDT
Was the segfault from the bad swap?
Comment 4 Ted Kaczmarek 2003-04-24 06:56:02 EDT
Don't think so, need to eliminate that possibility. I can't establish a behavior
pattern that is consistent. Figthing with Dell to get anew drive :-(.
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2003-04-24 14:55:48 EDT
OK, still waiting to see if problem is reproducible.
Comment 6 Ted Kaczmarek 2003-11-29 23:58:40 EST
Jeff, I have been unable to reproduce across nfs or samba mounts for
quite a while, close it out. If it happens again I will get some media
data to go along with the problem.
