Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 97129
RPM seg faults
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
I up2dated completely an AS 2.1 box yesterday, and now I can't install new rpm's
or rebuild the rpm database. I always get segmentation faults. For example:
rpm -ivh VMware-workstation-4.0.0-4460.i386.rpm
Preparing... Segmentation fault
*** dbiUpdateRecord: uh is NULL
Before the up2date, rpm worked fine.
I'll e-mail a copy of my /var/lib/rpm db.
After installing the fix, I can install rpm's again. But, running up2date gives
me the following error:
Error communicating with server. The message was:
Your account does not have access to any channels matching
Error Class Code: 19
Error Class Info:

I think that this bug may be due to the Packages file that Jeff sent me. I did
a search through that file, and I see a string in it that reads,
I also wonder if the rpm Package file lists all the right rpm's. For example:
/root/>rpm -q make
/usr/bin/which: no make in
reassigning to jeff, as this doesn't seem to be an rhn but an rpm problem
seems fixed now, at least the up2date error, closing
Reopened bug while waiting for fixed AS 2.1 rpm Packages db
WONTFIX in the sense that no AS 2.1 change for rpm is currently planned.
