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): rpm-4.2-0.66 glibc-2.3.1-45 kernel-2.4.20-2.48 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. #0 0x42074e22 in _int_malloc () from /lib/tls/libc.so.6 #1 0x42074112 in malloc () from /lib/tls/libc.so.6 #2 0x400a28b1 in headerNEVRA () from /usr/lib/librpmdb-4.2.so #3 0x400ac54c in rpmdbNextIterator () from /usr/lib/librpmdb-4.2.so #4 0x40070bad in rpmtsRun () from /usr/lib/librpm-4.2.so #5 0x400607a2 in rpmInstall () from /usr/lib/librpm-4.2.so #6 0x0804b459 in strcpy () #7 0x420154a0 in __libc_start_main () from /lib/tls/libc.so.6
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.
