What do the following commands output:

rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
yum list pcre pcre-devel
Comment 2 Yura Kohut 2011-01-13 03:52:12 EST
Running 'yum clean all' fixed the problem for to day. But some packages were updated and the repository data regenerated - that seems fixed the issue.
Comment 3 James Antill 2011-01-13 09:04:16 EST
Not sure if there was/is a bug ... my guess was a prexisting problem in the rpmdb, or something weird to do with multilib.
Given clean all fixed it, and I don't have enough info, I'm just going to close though.
