Re: No i386 images in rawhide,

Its just plain rpm. An example doing a simple package query gives me
the following

[root cypher ~]# rpm -q glibc
error: Unterminated {: {_%{_keyringpath}/*.k
 0< /
error: /: reading of public key failed.
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - No such file or

(2)
error: Unterminated {: {_%{_dbpat???
 0< /
error: cannot open Packages database in /

[root cypher ~]#

Let me know if you want me to do further testing.

Smells strongly of memory corruption... Can you run the same with
valgrind?

# valgrind --leak-check=yes rpm -q glibc

Hmm. don't have valgrind installed and rpm is screwed so I can't.....
suggestions?

rpm2cpio should work even if rpm is otherwise screwed (and if even that
fails, there's a script version in /usr/lib/rpm/rpm2cpio.sh). Also just a
strace might provide some clues, if you have that installed.

Any idea what provides the memcheck tool?

[root cypher bin]# ./valgrind --leak-check=yes rpm -q glibc
valgrind: failed to start tool 'memcheck' for platform 'x86-linux': No
such file or directory
[root cypher bin]#

valgrind expects to find the bits and pieces in certain places - you'll need
to do the rpm2cpio unpacking from / to get the paths right.

Output can be found here. Let me know if you want any other things run.

Hmm, this appears to be F10 valgrind (==3619== Using valgrind-3.3.0), which is fairly broken at least as far as rpm goes (it doesn't handle pipe2() syscall which prevents macros from getting properly processed), try grabbing rawhide valgrind instead and rerun.

Some related items: despite macros being somewhat busted, it actually manages to return the glibc version: glibc-2.9.90-12.i586. That is rawhide alright, but then:

==3623==    by 0xBAB7C3: rpmInitCrypto (in /usr/lib/librpmio-4.6.so)

...it still has rpm 4.6.0, whereas rawhide has 4.7.0-beta1. That this happens with rpm 4.6.0 too is probably a useful piece of information. Since rpm seems to limp on somehow under valgrind (which is might be a clue in itself), try grabbing the entire package list with 'valgrind rpm -qa', maybe there are some further clues there. (and yes this is pretty much shooting in the dark, trying to hunt for some clues)
