Description of problem:
Internal error in backend

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unknown. When I try to run yum, I get:

"[root@localhost jones]# yum --help
error: rpmdb: Thread/process 1704/140150790620960 failed: Thread died in Berkeley DB library
error: db4 error(-30974) from dbenv->failchk: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index using db4 -  (-30974)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm

Error: rpmdb open failed

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Trying to install debug packages with Add/Remove software, because abrt was getting "operation not permitted" messages when trying to download debug info.
Actual results:
Can't open rpmdb. Would like to know if I can get it back without reinstalling whole system.

Expected results:
Normal bug reporting

Comment 1 Peter H. Jones 2011-04-12 08:49:10 EDT
After searching with Google, I rediscovered the rpm --rebuilddb command. That fixed up my RPM database. Whew!
