Description Maciej Żenczykowski 2010-05-25 22:16:25 UTC
I just performed a yum upgrade (after rpm -hvU fedora-release-13) of a (very minimal) Fedora 12 system to Fedora 13. The upgrade went just fine, with the exception of grubby segfaulting and failing to update grub.conf with the new kernel. Here's a log of what happens when I uninstall and reinstall the Fedora 13 kernel: [root@gaia ~]# uname -a Linux gaia 188.8.131.52-115.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Apr 30 19:46:25 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux [root@gaia ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release Fedora release 13 (Goddard) [root@gaia ~]# yum list extras Extra Packages cups-windows.i386 1:6.0-1 installed kernel.x86_64 184.108.40.206-115.fc12 installed [root@gaia ~]# rpm -q kernel kernel-220.127.116.11-115.fc12.x86_64 kernel-18.104.22.168-95.fc13.x86_64 [root@gaia ~]# rpm -e kernel-22.214.171.124-95.fc13.x86_64 [root@gaia ~]# yum upgrade Setting up Upgrade Process Resolving Dependencies --> Running transaction check ---> Package kernel.x86_64 0:126.96.36.199-95.fc13 set to be installed --> Finished Dependency Resolution Dependencies Resolved ================================================================================ Package Arch Version Repository Size ================================================================================ Installing: kernel x86_64 188.8.131.52-95.fc13 updates 21 M Transaction Summary ================================================================================ Install 1 Package(s) Upgrade 0 Package(s) Total download size: 21 M Installed size: 103 M Is this ok [y/N]: y Downloading Packages: kernel-184.108.40.206-95.fc13.x86_64.rpm | 21 MB 06:33 Running rpm_check_debug Running Transaction Test Transaction Test Succeeded Running Transaction Warning: RPMDB altered outside of yum.

Comment 1 Maciej Żenczykowski 2010-05-26 06:58:07 UTC
The above was with an x86_64 box. I've now had the exact same thing come up on an i686 install: # yum upgrade (to F13, otherwise than the error message below the upgrade process is totally smooth and clean - this box was pretty much a virgin [but fully uptodate] F12 install) Installing : kernel-PAE-22.214.171.124-95.fc13.i686 454/934 grubby recieved SIGSEGV!

Comment 2 Maciej Żenczykowski 2010-05-26 07:10:56 UTC
Version of grubby in question (I'll try installing and testing some older versions as well): # rpm -q grubby grubby-7.0.13-1.fc13.x86_64 (or) grubby-7.0.13-1.fc13.i686
Comment 3 Maciej Żenczykowski 2010-05-26 07:15:19 UTC
Interestingly it turns out I've been running with exactly that version of grubby on an F12 development laptop (with some mesa + kernel packages from F13 for better nvidia support) for a while now, and didn't notice any problems.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 13:30:24 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '13'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2011-06-27 16:39:27 UTC
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
