Bug#437445: aptitude: segfault with package lists concurrency problem
In one window I did:
|$ sudo aptitude update
|Fetched 388kB in 36s (10.6kB/s)
|Segmentation faultsts... 0%
I a different window I started:
|$ sleep 20; sudo aptitude install linux-image-2.6.22-1-vserver-686
|E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
|E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
|Segmentation faultsts... 1%
Maybe this is due to mmaping a file whose size changes (shrinks?)?
