Description of Problem:
Specific problem, and a general problem with poor quality of error
messages that leave the user with absolutely no clue what might be wrong or
where to look next.

[root@beermat rawhide]# rpm -Uvh ggv-1.0.2-7.i386.rpm glade-0.6.4-4.i386.rpm
glade2-1.1.0-5.i386.rpm gnome-applets-2.0.0-5.i386.rpm
gnome-session-2.0.0-2.i386.rpm

Could not create database.  Aborting update.
[root@beermat rawhide]#


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.1-0.26


How Reproducible:
Seems to occur with multiple gnome packages.  i.e. this may be a gnome
problem rather than an rpm problem


Steps to Reproduce:
(different example)
1. rpm -Uvh nautilus-1.1.19-4.i386.rpm
2. 
3. 

Actual Results:
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:nautilus               ########################################### [100%]
Could not create database.  Aborting update.


Expected Results:
No error, or a more useful error message.

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-06-14 10:41:56 EDT
This isn't an rpm error. Off to nautilus ...
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-06-14 10:52:16 EDT
It's scrollkeeper. But fixed in rawhide.
Comment 3 ellson 2002-06-14 11:29:42 EDT
Confirming that the specific problem has gone with scrollkeeper-0.3.9-2

Now how about the more general problem of poor error messages?  Why didn't
this error message indicate that it was scrollkeeper that was having the problem?
