Description of Problem:
[After I suggested running db_verify when he had rpm database problems]

Things started going down hill from there with freeze ups and huge lags. So
I wiped the drive clean, repartitioned and started again. Nothing on the

installed fine but I try to rmp updates and I now get: db4 error -(30981)
run recovery. Is there a work around?

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed stock 7.2 on his system
Created attachment 56944 [details]

I wiped and reinstalled RH again this time with a new hard drive. I set up my
account and tried to update. While updating I received this error over and over
'error: db4 error (-30979) from db->verify: DB_VERIFY_BAD: Database verification
failed'. I try to db_verify or db_recover and I get a bash can't find command
error. Now up2date will not run.

Please reopen if you need help. Otherwise, I'm assuming
a hardware problem.
