Description Patrice Dumas 2006-11-07 04:27:13 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):

rpmdb_verify is db_verify from the internal version of Sleepycat.

rpm -e db4-utils
cd /var/lib/rpm
/usr/lib/rpm/rpmdb_verify Packages

Works for me.
Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2006-11-07 04:44:58 EST
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...
