Failed upgrade (see bug 12276, bug 12278, bug 12280, bug 12281) of 6.2 to
beta1. After booting back to 6.2 to try and free up more space, rpm,
gnorpm, etc. barf on /var/lib/rpm/packages.rpm missing. Sure enough, the
only contents of /var/lib/rpm are:
Basenames, Conflictname, Group, Name, Packages, Providename, Requirename,
verified this behavior is still present in post-beta3 internal build ...
Can we see if this is still a beta4 problem before beta 5 please?
Fixed in latest builds
verified fix in test tree qa0109.0 ...
