Description of problem:
The update seems to use a new rpmdb format which is not compatible
with either rpm or db3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ES2.1 & rpmdb-redhat
2. Update to latest rpmdb-redhat
3. run rpm -q -redhatprovides rpm
Actual Results: rpmdb:
/usr/lib/rpmdb/i386-redhat-linux/redhat/Packages: unsupported hash
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Invalid argument (22)
Expected Results: rpm-4.0.4-7x.20
AFAIK, the rpmdb should be in Berkeley DB (Hash, version 7, native
byte-order) but is instead in Berkeley DB (Hash, version 8, native
byte-order). Perhaps this would be solved with an update to rpm or
db3 rather than a rebuild of rpmdb in V7 format.
The fix is in the rpmdb-redhat package which is mis-built
with an rpm version that uses db-4.1.25, not db-4.0.14.
Any chance of getting this fixed?
Guess what, this is still broken in U4...
