Last modified: 2008-06-16 23:08:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Today when running rpm --root on an chroot environment we keep we had the
unexpected behavior of the rpm db having references outside it's directory
structure. eg running the command below outside of the chroot produced the
output below once chroot'ed into the environment.
rpm --force --root /homes/sys/adm/masterOS/dist/FC/7_x86_64/desktop/ -ivh
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RPM version 184.108.40.206
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the above rpm command on a chroot F7 environment from an F7 environment
2. Chroot into the F7 environment
3. run rpmquery
rpmdb: /homes/sys/adm/masterOS/dist/FC/7_x86_64/desktop/var/lib/rpm/Filemd5s: No
such file or directory
