Re: apt cache files (*.bin) corruption

Hi all,

Recently, I've been getting regular instances of the bin files in
/var/cache/apt getting corrupted (any apt related command seg-faults unless
I delete these files and do another 'update).

It happened to me a couple of weeks ago, when I erroneously ran two instances of aptitude on two ttys. I don't know how I interleaved the various commands I gave on both instances, but the result was exactly this, the .bin files corrupted and the consequent segfaults.

Etch release, aptitude 0.4.3-1.

My .02 €.

                1905 -> 2005 (+1)... la storia continua
