Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-01-31 16:28:31 UTC
redhat-config-printer*-0.6.43* upgrades for me, so something
else is going on.

Try doing rpm --rebuilddb -vv, and then repeat the
command with -Uvv not -Uvh, please. Attach output
here if problem persists.

Comment 2 Bill Glover 2003-02-02 23:50:34 UTC
rechecked with new install and still segmentation faults for me.

I will recheck when beta 3 comes out and see if it is still a problem. Probably
something unique to my install and system.

I have no easy way of getting any more info right now.


Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2003-02-05 15:14:57 UTC
Please reopen if problem persists.

Comment 4 Bill Glover 2003-02-05 18:07:47 UTC
I can't determine why it still segment faults. So I put the relevant files in
manually and am now using them with no apparent problem.

I will test/try again with the next beta.
