Question

Yum problem in CentOS 6.5

Hi, I started to have problems with yum. It does not return anything.

When I check /var/log/messages, I can find following error messages:

Oct 16 05:14:31 dev kernel: yum[28694]: segfault at 3000000000 ip 00000030130813c0 sp 00007fffc9047f98 error 4 in libc-2.12.so[3013000000+18a000]

where the “dev kernel: yum” and “error 4 in libc-2.12.so” are always present.

Any clues how to solve? I have tried to disable repos one by one. No luck there. Running yum with -d does not give a clue.

I cannot find libc-2.12.so thought I don’t know where is should exist.

Not sure if you updated prior to that and didn’t reboot, but if that is the case, this is usually resolved by a reboot. If that doesn’t fix it, try this:

updatedb; locate libc-2.12.so
