Description Jon Burgess 2003-03-21 18:00:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux) 
 
Description of problem: 
I updated to rpm-4.1.1-0.2.8x and now my ~/.xession-erros is filling up with errors like: 
 
rpmdb: /var/lib/rpm/Packages: unsupported hash version: 8 
rpmdb: /var/lib/rpm/Packages: unsupported hash version: 8 
rpmdb: /var/lib/rpm/Packages: unsupported hash version: 8 
ain't there yet 
ain't there yet 
ain't there yet 
 
I then removed the applet from my taskbar and the message have stopped 
 
I think this is caused by the upgrade of rpm, although the bug could in fact be somewhere 
else, but I trust Jeff will know which direction to push this. 
 
My guess is that python is using librpmdb404 and it doesn't like the new rpm db's created by 
rpm-4.1.1 
 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Basically RH8 + RPM updates 
rpm-4.1.1-0.2.8x  
rpm-build-4.1.1-0.2.8x 
rpm404-python-4.0.4-8x.27 
rpm-devel-4.1.1-0.2.8x 
rpm-python-4.1.1-0.2.8x 
librpm404-4.0.4-8x.27 
rhnlib-1.0-1 
rhn-applet-2.0.0-28 
 
How reproducible: 
Always 
 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Update rpm to specified version & then login to X 
2. Examine the contents of ~/.xsession-errors 
3. 
     
 
Expected Results:  No error messages

Run
    /usr/lib/rpm/rpmdb_loadcvt
to change to db-4.0.14 compatible format.
