Description Hans Deragon 2005-06-21 20:22:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Tried the following:

# rpm -Uhv
error: skipping - transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error
Segmentation fault

Of course, the URL is bogus.  But that is the point.  RPM should abort gracefully in such condition.

Here is a different case.  Unfortunatly, it only occurs within our internal network and thus, I cannot provide an example on the Internet you can try.  In this case, rpm hangs.

rpm -Uhv http://someserver/fedora/4/i386/apt.rpm
Retrieving http://someserver/fedora/4/i386/apt.rpm
error: open of <!DOCTYPE failed: No such file or directory
error: open of HTML failed: No such file or directory
error: open of PUBLIC failed: No such file or directory
<hang here>
