Description Bryan Che 2003-06-10 18:12:14 UTC
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

rpmdb --rebuilddb
*** dbiUpdateRecord: uh is NULL
Segmentation fault

Before the up2date, rpm worked fine.

I'll e-mail a copy of my /var/lib/rpm db.

Comment 2 Bryan Che 2003-06-10 20:24:13 UTC
After installing the fix, I can install rpm's again.  But, running up2date gives
me the following error:

up2date -u

Comment 3 Bryan Che 2003-06-11 13:49:19 UTC
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,

Comment 4 Bryan Che 2003-06-11 13:58:38 UTC
I also wonder if the rpm Package file lists all the right rpm's.  For example:

/root/>rpm -q make
/root/>which make
/usr/bin/which: no make in

Comment 5 Bryan Che 2003-06-11 14:09:14 UTC
reassigning to jeff, as this doesn't seem to be an rhn but an rpm problem

Comment 6 Adrian Likins 2003-06-11 19:29:10 UTC
seems fixed now, at least the up2date error, closing

Comment 7 Bryan Che 2003-06-11 20:49:24 UTC
Reopened bug while waiting for fixed AS 2.1 rpm Packages db

Comment 8 Jeff Johnson 2005-01-18 04:08:19 UTC
WONTFIX in the sense that no AS 2.1 change for rpm is currently planned.
