Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
i get this error when i updated awhile back but it went away but still no
updates have succeded in installation even though it says it does i also get
this error message when i install an rpm
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
i think it happened when i did a shutdown after a update yum install didnt shutdown
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 147865 [details]
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
Is this still occuring.
Most likely yet another kernel mmap() bug victim of the time. If reproducable
after updating to kernel 2.6.19-1.2895 or later then reinvestigation is needed.
