fatal error reading rpm database
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
After retreiving header files for all available packages (or querying
locally cached headers), up2date (2.1.7-0.6.x) fails with:
There was a fatal RPM error. The message was:
error reading from database
I have verified the integrity of rpm's database files with db3_verify. They
all check out fine.
This fatal error does not occur if the "display all packages available" option
This also occurs with RH 7.0, up2date-2.1.7-1, with either -l or -d, both with
and without -a.
Forcing the user to not use -d is a bit annoying.
