Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214363
rpm should depend on db4-utils
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
db_verify, needed for example by /usr/lib/rpm/rpmdb_verify may not
be installed. It is in db4-utils.
It is a serious issue in my opinion because sometimes it seems to
be the only way to bring rpm database back to life.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
rpmdb_verify is db_verify from the internal version of Sleepycat.
rpm -e db4-utils
Works for me.
Indeed, I got it wrong. In fact I was confused by the error
message of /usr/lib/rpm/rpmdb_verify which referred to
db_verify, so I incorrectly assumed that rpmdb_verify
was a wrapper... Sorry for the noise.
Maybe the error message could be changed, but that may be
too much work for little gain...
