rpm doesnt update properly on rh8
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:06 EDT
The rpm in legacy-utilities for rh8 seems to leave the rpm db in an inconsistent
After configuring yum for fedora legacy per instructions on the download page
name=Red Hat Linux $releasever base
name=Red Hat Linux $releasever updates
name=Fedora Legacy utilities for Red Hat Linux $releasever
This is a redhat 8.0 box :-
yum updated rpm :-
tail -100 /var/log/yum.log.2

03/18/04 02:09:20 Updated: tcpdump.i386
03/18/04 02:09:20 Updated: rpm-python.i386
yum update then wouldnt run with the following errors :-
rpmdb: /var/lib/rpm/Packages: unsupported hash version: 8
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Invalid argument (22)
I asked about it on #rpm and the response was :-
jbj_hiho> lancelan: you've straddled db-4.0.14 db-4.1.25 forward compat
boundary. see /usr/lib/rpm/rpmdb_loadcvt script.
I ran that script and it apparently updated the rpom dbs because yum worked again.
I think the rpm is meant to do something similar in the %post ...
