Description Benson Jin 2002-12-10 04:56:25 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
Sympton: rpm exits with error - "Segmentation fault" when used with -i or -U. 
and rpmbuild is the same.

current status: it starts working just now. Hey, I DID have that problem since 
3 days ago. :-( I thought I should regenerate the error message with -vv 
option for your convenience. However, it magically recovered. 8-|

Solution: I don't know yet. It may be caused by ldap auth, since recently I 
have been working on ldap auth for PAM, postfix, courier-imap, and samba. 
maybe some changes I made today, correct the problem? But, but....does rpm 
request any auth during install or update? wired.....

I kept writing instead of quit, because I hope this can help you for future 
troubleshootings. :-D

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set up ldap auth
2.somehow, mess it up rpm with either -i or -U options

Actual Results:  Segmentation fault

Expected Results:  ..... can not expect much, when it is my own fault.... :-(

LDAP passwords? Yes, statically linked binaries like
/bin/rpm segfault (or not) depending on whether nscd
is running.
