Description adam.huffman 2001-02-05 00:47:02 UTC
The cause of this problem might be that the rpm package has not been
installed correctly:

rpm -V rpm
missing    /etc/rpm/macros.db1

that's after re-installing it.

I was having problems installing the XEmacs RPM, owing to failed
dependencies, so I tried rpm -q --redhatprovides libwnn6.so.1.0
but I got the following error message:

error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - No such file or directory (2)

rpm -V rpmdb-redhat doesn't produce any errors

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-02-05 15:59:35 UTC
       rpm -V rpm
       missing    /etc/rpm/macros.db1
verification is as expected, as /etc/rpm/macros.db1 is removed in %post if
using db3 in rpm.

Adding "--dbapi 1" will permit querying db1 databases such as what's in rpmdb.

It might be nice to document this.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2001-02-07 17:59:58 UTC
Yes it would be nice to document, the issue is where it should be documented so
the information can be found.
