Subject: apt-get segmentation fault with file://
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII
When using an entry in /etc/apt/sources.list like
deb file://home/bob local main contrib non-free
The packages found are not given a line like:
in /var/lib/dpkg/available (I'm using dselect with apt method).
Later when trying to install one of these packages (either from dselect or
apt-get install ...) there is a segmentation fault in the method
pkgPackageManager::GetArchives when it tries to lookup the "Filename" and
dereference its value.
Here is some output from dselect:
Updating package status cache...done
Checking system integrity...ok
1 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
/usr/lib/dpkg//methods/apt/install: line 2: 2985 Segmentation fault
apt-get -f dselect-upgrade
Some errors occurred while unpacking. I'm going to configure the packages
that were installed. This may result in duplicate errors or errors caused
by missing dependencies. This is OK, only the errors above this message
are important. Please fix them and run [I]nstall again Press enter to
continue. installation script returned error exit status 100.
Press RETURN to continue.
