Is the file corruption problem currently being discussed on LKML
to the RPM/Yum seg-faults I occasionally on my 300 MHz, PII, notebook
(with only 256 MB of RAM)?
I usually see the seg-faults while glibc-common is being updated during a
large update (within the first 2 or 3 files of 30+ file update). If I
update glibc* first, that, and the following updated of the remainder
always works. If glibc has a lot of dependency info, I can see the
/var/lib/rpm/__db.00* databases taking a hit and requiring manual
deletion to restart.
If this is true, this bug might have started before FC6 was released, but
only gets hit when memory runs low.
I forgot to mention the notebook is running kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
which is 22.214.171.124.
