I suspect this is the first attempt to use rpm since you upgraded from the 8.0
glibc, and your problem is that rpm isn't new enough.

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2003-02-07 22:21:03 UTC
You need to upgrade at least all statically linked applications which use NSS
or iconv (ie. dlopen shared libraries).

Comment 3 Kim Bisgaard 2003-02-09 10:50:13 UTC
Thanks for the help!

Isen't that a bug with regard to some dependency?

Do you have an idea on how to:
1. identify which applications that is? except from rpm
2. how to upgrade them when rpm does not work?

Best regards,

You could have dug yourself into a hole it is not easy to escape from! Setting
the environment variable LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 is worth a try; it turns off TLS
in some cases, though I don't know if it will work in this one. Otherwise you
could boot off your CD in rescue mode; run linux rescue at the boot prompt, and
install the necessary packages that way, though the simplest way is probably to
download the phoebe beta CDs, and upgrade completely to the beta.
