Description Lars Langhans 2004-10-20 02:28:15 UTC
rpm SIGFAULT while try to install new OOo 1.9.m56 which use rpms *sign*.
I tried this
rpm -i -vh --nodeps --prefix=/tmp/OOo8 openoffice-core-1.9.56-1.i586.rpm
which result in
Segmentation fault

rpm -i -vh --nodeps openoffice-core-1.9.56-1.i586.rpm
works well and install OOo core in directory /opt/openoffice1.9.56

OOo is relocatable, believe me, with a static rpm 3.0.6 hijacked (ah borrowed) from a SuSE 8.0 it works very well.

Parameter --relocate X=Y produce also a Segmentation fault.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See details

Expected Results:  
No Segmentation Fault.

If you search Redhat's bugzilla you can see this bug in common action!

They say it is fixed in FC2 rpm; so I will update it some time and see if it fixes it.

Ok, it seems the rpm version I put in portage from Redhat has a bug!

The one off works fine! Will add the official version to portage and see about getting rid of RedHat's versions
Comment 4 Stefan Jones (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-23 18:56:48 UTC
Ok added rpm-4.2 to portage in stable and masked rpm-4.2.1 for x86

rpm -i -vvvh --nodeps openoffice-core-1.9.56-1.i586.rpm --prefix=/tmp/OOo8
 Works fine now :-)

Please test your end

Comment 6 Lars Langhans 2004-11-18 22:18:25 UTC
Due to the fact it works well, I close this bug.
