Comment 1 Kjartan Maraas 2001-08-06 11:04:17 UTC
And of course, if I had done my homework I would have known that this was fixed
by removing /var/lib/rpm/__db*

Fixed it for me.


Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-08-06 11:16:26 UTC
FWIW, this should be fixed for everyone now, in rpm-4.0.3-0.87
and later. Homework is a PITA :-)
