Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 489225
update to rpm 4.7 beta1 resulted in some db errors
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:44:03 EDT
Description of problem:
I ran yum update and got the new rpm versions and rpm gave some db errors after that about unable to access the database. I have to move out all __db* files from /var/lib/rpm for rpm to work again. I have the __db files if you need them and I am running ext3 and not ext4 since this is originally a Fedora 10 installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am not sure what information you require to help debug the problem but if you need anything, ask.
The exact error message(s) would be needed for meaningful commentary.
Without further info, I'm assuming this is one of the cases/side-effects of rpm not removing the db environment automatically.
